The rescued pups are enjoying the piggy back rides around the pool with the resident seals, but it is going to be a few more weeks before any pups
are ready for release back to the wild.
Update: 30th May 2012 - On Tuesday 29th May 2012 the Cornish Seal Sanctuary´s Animal Care Team decided to do a seal pup release as the weather in Cornwall was good and the high tides were on their side.

Members of the Animal Care Team drove to Gunwalloe which is a short distance from the seal sanctuary and managed to release nine pups Tiny Tim, Van Persie, Mary King, Tony Hawk, Carwardine, Shawn Ellis, Sam Cornelius, Steve Irwin and Bronte back to the wild.
