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.

He is only 18kgs and appears much older than Andrew that arrived last month form Jersey.  Despite being 6 to 8 weeks of age he has a number of ailments from a chest infection to his emaciated condition.
