Seal rescue!
11th June 2019

By Sandra Pearce



Sea Life Great Yarmouth has welcomed a pair of rescued grey seal pups.

The pups, named Snowball and Jonny, were rescued on the Norfolk coast.  Snowball had been abandoned by his mum and would not have survived without intervention due to how young he was. 

Jonny had head injuries which needed medical treatment, without which would have prevented her from surviving in the wild unless treated.

After several weeks of veterinary care, both seal pups will need a little time to get used to swimming in deeper water and reach their target weight.
