On 15th September 2021 the time came to say goodbye to the final four seal pups of the 2020/2021 rescue season!
Jurgen, Meryasek (aka Merry) and Taco were released from Dollar Cove that morning, making their way back to their home in the sea.
It´s always an emotional moment saying goodbye to the pups that have been cared for at the sanctuary, and so rewarding seeing them head back to the sea, free from their injuries and ailments and now able to thrive and live their lives.
Jurgen was named by the SEA LIFE Trust patrons, John Bishop and Mel Bishop during their visit earlier this year in May. We would like to thank them for their support of Jurgen´s rehabilitation and for sharing his story. Also like to thank Sophie Cornick and her family for sponsoring Merry, we are so thankful for your support!
A huge thank you to everyone who has supported the Sanctuary, all those who were involved in the rescue and rehabilitation of these pups especially British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR), and of course the Sponsors.
Your support has ensured the Seal Sanctuary can continue to do the work helping sick and injured seal pups receive the care they need and be returned to their home in the sea.
