Often during the winter months with the high winds and stormy weather makes it difficult for wild animals and birds to feed and rest.

After the stormy weather the GSPCA are asking those that live around and visit our coast to please watch out for injured animals in need as well as seal pups which can get separated from their mothers at this time of year especially when we see bad weather.

We have a number of web pages with wildlife advice or you can call 01481 257261 for help 24/7

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.

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