Cardamom was rescued on 15th January 2023

Cardamom, a 10-12 weeks old male grey seal pup, was rescued on the 15th of January 2023 from Porthoustock by members of the Sanctuary´s Animal Care Team.

He was found with respiratory breathing problems, underweight and malnourished.
Update - 22nd January 2023 : Cardamom is currently on a treatment where a nebulizer is placed just outside his pen for a short time each day to help with his breathing.

These photos below were taken on the 21st of January 2023 in the isolation pen in the hospital.
Update - 25th February 2023 : It is always a good day when the Animal Care Team return the rescued seal pups back into the wild where they belong, but at the same time it is a bit emotional saying goodbye after being with them for the past 2-3 months.

Cardamom along with Fennel, Onion Powder and Tulsi were loaded in the Sanctuary´s trailer and drove them to Perranuthnoe for the release on 23rd February 2023.
