If you find a Seal in the Wild

For 36 years The Scottish SEA LIFE Sanctuary has been rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing those pups from our local coastline that find themselves in trouble, whether it be eye problems, respiratory infections and malnourishment to broken bones, pollution-related problems and being separated from their mother too soon.

Just like to remind you that if you discover a seal pup that is in distress or alone, please call the SEA LIFE Sanctuary on 01631 720386 and/or the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) team on 01825 765546.

Please remember these simple rules:-

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.

If you spot a seal around our coast, please remember it will smell, hear and see you, possibly before you even see it! Keep your distance. This is our guide to identifying a common from a grey seal.
