Sea Cucumber was rescued on 6th November 2021
Sea Cucumber, a male grey seal pup, was rescued from Sennen Cove on 6th November 2021 by members of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) marine mammal medics.

He was rescued due to respiratory infection and superficial wounds. Also a broken digit on his rear left flipper which had to be removed by the Sanctuary´s vets Head and Head.

The pup´s wounds are healing nicely and once the flipper has healed, he will be ready for a swim!

Update - 17th December 2021 : It is always sad to say a fond farewell to the rescued seal pups each season after their care and rehabilitation at the Seal Sanctuary.

This time the staff said "au revoir" to Sea Cucumber along with Nudibranch, Moana, Barley, Puffin, Coral and Urchin on 15th December 2021 at Dollar Cove.
