Seals in the wild
Please...DO keep your distance; Do Not attempt to handle the pup; Do Not attempt to put the pup in the sea; Do Not ignore the situation; Do call the Sanctuary on 01631 720386 or tell an appropriate organisation.

The Animal Care Team are 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.
