After months of care and with good weather on our site the GSPCA released Marty the Jersey seal pup back in the wild today and it was without doubt one of the best releases ever for the GSPCA team.

This Winter has been exceptionally busy for seal pups at the GSPCA as up until this morning we have had 6 in our care but thanks to a lovely Jersey family and their boat Marty is now back in the wild.

Marty arrived at the GSPCA on the 17th December just a week before Christmas last year weighing just 18kg when he should have been 40kg.

It is #InternationalSealDay please support our 6 seal by donating to their care and the Urgent Fish Appeal

Submitted by Steve on 10:57, 22nd Mar, 2019 | 0

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.”

Today has been a very busy day as a second poorly seal pup from Jersey has arrived at the GSPCA.

Marty as he has been named was rescued by the Jersey British Divers Marine Life Rescue yesterday on Green Island beach.

He spent the night at New Era Vets and was transported kindly by Blue Islands from Jersey to Guernsey.
