India the Guernsey seal pup who was rescued in March and Joey the Jersey seal pup rescued in November have finally had the all clear from the vets, their weights at a great release weight and we have good weather so we are planning to release the seal pups at a secret location this week.

Thanks to the huge efforts of Geoff George and the team the seal pups who were so thin and unwell on arrival are finally off back to the wild where they belong.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “India and Joey the seal pups are ready to be released back to where they belong.”

Today is #InternationalSealDay and with our 6 seal pups at the GSPCA we really need your support.

We currently have an Urgent Fish appeal to help our seal pups for ideally mackerel or herring but any sea fish that has been caught in the last 3 months would be hugely appreciated.

Eating at least 20-30 fish each per day we are going through over 150 fish a day and with the recent rough weather many fishermen that support us have been unable to go out.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “Today is #InternationalSealDay and at the GSPCA we have 6 currently in our care.”

Sixth and latest ever seal pup in the season to be rescued - please donate to Hannah and the other 6 seal pups at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 09:47, 17th Feb, 2019 | 0

Yesterday morning the GSPCA team were called out to yet another sick and very underweight grey seal pup.

The call came near the Fairy Ring and the team when they arrived were faced with an emaciated and very poorly young seal pup which was half the weight it should be.

The pup was quickly recued and transported to the GSPCA and the young pup at only a few weeks old should be over 40kgs and was just 20.6kg when rescued with no mother in site.

This takes the numbers of seal pups to the highest it has ever been in our long history.
