Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

In January a very sick and injured grey seal pup was rescued on the South coast of Guernsey.

Bonnie has she has been named is without doubt the weakest seal pup ever to be rescued by the GSPCA and the team were overjoyed that she survived the rescue and the first few days.

At only 14kg at time of rescue Bonnie was 26kg lighter than she should be for her age which was only around 2 weeks old.

It was touch and go during the first few days and Geoff George Animal Collection Officer and head seal rehabilitator with the GSPCA team worked around the clock to ensure she survived the first few days.

Local vet and GSPCA President John Knight attended shortly after Bonnie's rescue to treat and medicate her. 

She is still very weak but the team have moved her diet onto fish soup and even some whole fresh herring along with the drugs she has been prescribed.

She continues to be under a heat lamp and heated seal room where she will likely need to be kept for some time before being able to move her into the pools at the Shelter but it is still to early to tell if she has other internal complications and we continue to work with the vet to treat her as well as keeping our fingers crossed for her.

We also have a number of oiled birds in our care and would love to improve our facilities in the wildlife unit including tiling the floor as well as feeding the oiled birds, Bonnie the seal pup and others in the wildlife unit.
