News Update for July 2009
Lora and Lilly
Our residents have been enjoying the great weather we have been having recently, sunbathing in their pools and playing with the buoys that have been added for fun.

Both Lilly and Lora have been continuing their training with good strong results, helping our animal care team to help assess their condition easily, causing minimal stress to them.
Isla and Lewis
Isla and Lewis Otter creek has undergone some big changes this month. The divide through the enclosure has been removed giving Isla and Lewis the chance to roam through all the pools and the undergrowth for the first time.

They were cautious at first, but soon became nosey to see what else they could see.
Animal
Adoptions
A special way to honour a birthday, special occasion or to commemorate the life of a loved one, while supporting an important cause.

Rescued pups
We have not received any calls recently about any seal pups in need of our care, however, we are ready in anticipation if any do need help.
SOS Seal Rescue Hospital
Seal Rescue
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 our 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.
If you should discover a seal pup that seems to be in distress, or is alone, what you do next could mean the difference between life and death for the animal.

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.
