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.

Saffron and Vanilla were loaded in the Sanctuary´s were loaded into the back of a 4x4 vehicle from the rehabilitation pool and driven the short distance to Kennack Sands on 3rd March 2023.

It was such a beautiful cold winter sunny afternoon as we watched the seal pups being released. Vanilla was out of her cage first followed by Saffron. As they made their way to the water, they looked back to say thank you and goodbye. We all wished them good luck and waved with tears in our eyes.   Click here to see a selection of photos of their release back into the wild.
