Seal release - 26th January 2022 Update : 30th January 2022 - Coraline along with Sapphire and Sponge have completed their rehabilitation at the Seal Sanctuary and were released back into the wild on 26th January 2022.

The target weight is 30kg, so when the pups have reached this weight, are feeding and competing well with each other and are happy, plump and healthy, the Seal Sanctuary releases them back to the wild! All of the pups are tagged on their rear flippers, so if you ever see a seal with a little coloured tag, give the Sanctuary a call!
