Tyne´s Pup
The Staff at Hunstanton SEA LIFE Sanctuary were taken by surprise when resident common seal Tyne gave birth to a healthy pup on 5th June 2015. They had no idea she was expecting!

A cute baby seal pup could be the product of a holiday romance.

If You Discover a Seal Pup in the Wild!
If you should discover a seal pup that seems to be in distress, or is alone, what you do next could mean the difference between life and death for the animal.

DO keep your distance;
DON´T attempt to handle the pup;
DON´T attempt to put the pup in the sea;
DON´T ignore the situation;
DO tell the appropriate organisation.
Call the Hunstanton SEA LIFE Sanctuary on 01485 533576.
Solero
The animal care team is on call around the clock to race to the rescue of seal pups in trouble anywhere around the coast. Back at the Sanctuary, pups receive expert veterinary care and are gradually weaned from a liquid diet to whole fish in the purpose built hospital. Then it´s to the outdoor pools to gain weight and build strength and stamina ready to resume life in the wild.
