Goonies was rescued on 24th November 2018
Goonies, 5 weeks old male seal pup, was rescued on 24th November 2018 from Holywell Bay beach, Newquay by Natalie, Catherine, Katy and Dave, members of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) Medics.

Natalie said "the pup had tucked herself away but was still drawing attention from the public and their canine friends. Only 14.5kgs, snotty and a few minor wounds on hind flippers. She had the characteristic graze wound on her chin but it was quite a nasty one and certainly looked very sore."
Goonies Natalie transported the seal pup to Gweek where she was met in the hospital´s car park by Tamara and Elliot.
