Pup on beach
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.
