Silver - Resident Common Seal
Tyne's pup The Staff were taken by surprise when Tyne, resident common seal, 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.

The youngster must have been conceived in July 2014 whilst Tyne and other residents were "holidaying" in Scarborough...while the Sanctuary was re-built after being devastated by storm floods.
