The common seal rescue season started earlier this month, below are some of the pups currently in the seal hospital. All so cute! Please spare a thought for members of Animal Care Team who are working shifts around the clock to feed these pups during day and night.

The lovely Animal Care Team decided to raise awareness of endangered animals around the world by naming each rescued pup after a different endangered species.

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.
