It's coming into that time of year and the UK have already been dealing with their first few sick and injured seal pups.  When out and about the GSPCA would like to urge the people of Guernsey and visitors to take care if you see a seal or seal pup as with the autumn weather they can be at risk from the strong currents and bad weather.


Charlie the Cormorant and Wildlife Unit Developments

When the winds pick up and the bad weather sets in we are always ready to receive sick and injured wildlife.  Last night we had Charlie a very tired and weak cormorant brought in.

Charlie was given a warm enclosure, plenty of fish and is rapidly improving.  Quite often the weak and hungry sea birds we have brought in just need feeding and heating which can lead to a very fast recovery.

Over the last few weeks we have been working hard improving our wildlife unit to prepare for the seal pups and other animals that we have over the winter months.

This evening a baby hedgehog was found all on its own by a kind passer by who discovered it with no mum in sight.  The poor little thing was found wet, cold and hungry and is now in our care. 

Now named Harry, the little hoglet is all tucked up warm with a comfy bed, plenty of food and will remain with us until old and healthy enough to be released.
