Obi Wan, male grey seal pup, was rescued from in front of the Sanctuary late at about 8.30pm in the evening of 12th February 2017 by Nat, Supervisor of the Animal Care Team.

At first the pup appeared to just be exhausted from rough seas and a little underweight but a closer look revealed he had some nasty wounds to his flippers and an infection as a result.
