Submitted by Steve on 23:45, 17th Feb, 2016 | 0

We are pleased to update that Bonnie the grey seal pup rescued below the cliffs on the south coast of Guernsey last month continues to improve.

Since being rescued at only 14kg in weight she has responded well to treatment and is putting weight on daily enjoying large numbers of fresh fish.

We are hoping in the next few days she will be ready to go out into the pools to start the next stage of her rehabilitation.

Bonnie the grey seal pup 4 weeks on

Submitted by Steve on 15:31, 12th Feb, 2016 | 0

Nearly 4 weeks ago the GSPCA were called out to rescue an emaciated grey seal pup.

We are pleased to report that Bonnie is doing very well and is putting on weight each and every day.

Her thin body and neck is putting on that much needed fat and she is eating extremely well going through 3-4kg of fresh fish every day.

Still under weight for her age it will be at the very least 6 weeks or so before she is fit, fat and well enough to be put back in the wild.

Every Autumn the shores of the Bailiwick see grey seal pups being born, and the GSPCA are issuing advice today because of the inclement weather we have seen recently.

The earliest seal we have rescued in recent years was Jethou Bumblebee who was found during the last week of November back in 2012.

During the last few winters the GSPCA have rescued four Grey Seal Pups in total.  Two in 2013/14 Eden and Trinity and the previous winter Jethou Bumblebee and Hanois.

We are delighted to announce that both seal pups Trinity and Eden who were rescued last week are currently doing well.

Trinity who was rescued at Pleinmont and Eden from outside Castle Cornet both were on deaths door when they were found but thanks to around the clock care they are both on the road to recovery.

After much treatment and tube feeding throughout the day and night both seal pups are now strong enough to eat for themselves and enjoying whole mackerel and herring.

Bad Weather puts Seal Pups at risk this time of year - Please Watch for them around our coastline

Submitted by GSPCA on 14:55, 23rd Oct, 2013 | 0

Every Autumn the shores of the Bailiwick see Grey Seal pups being born and the GSPCA are issuing advice today on what to do especially with the rough weather that we currently have.

Last year the GSPCA rescued two Grey Seal Pups which were called Jethou Bumblebee and Hanois.

Fortunately both were rescued in time and were able to be rehabilitated at the GSPCA in Guernsey.

Earlier this Spring they were released back in the wild on Jethou and we have had regular sightings of them which certainly warmed the hearts of the GSPCA team.
