Badger - Grey Seal
Badger was a melanistic seal meaning pure black, not usual in grey seals.

He was rescued from Porthellick in the Isles of Scilly after being separated from his mum on 5th November 2014.

Badger is now a resident due to his thyroid level dropped too low to be released back to the wild so he will be on life-long treatment to maintain his level.
Badger When it drops Badger loses his appetite and becomes lethargic which in the wild would mean he would become malnourished and the Sanctuary do not want to release a seal back into the wild with a health problem that is serious, so he stayed at the Sanctuary as a Resident.
