Story

Thousands of common (harbour) seal pups are born in June and July throughout the UK. They are born well developed without a white coat (lanugo) which is shed in the uterus; unlike grey seal pups who are born with a white coat. Their mothers feed them on a rich milk allowing them to double their birth weight in their first few weeks.

However, many end up abandoned and alone (for various reasons) and without their mothers milk, and help from a rescue organisation, they will undoubtedly perish.

As a small charity, we are constantly under finanical pressure in order to carry out our lifesaving work. Vet bills and fuel costs run into the tens of thousands of pounds.

Can you help us make sure we can be there for every pup that needs out help?

Thank you 💙
