Update - 9th December 2023 : Yasmin has spent the past month in the outside nursery pools, this means she is on the road to recovery and mixing with other seal pups, also has a deeper pool to swim in.   Pups in the nursery pools will be learning how to behave in the wild, interacting with other seals and also competing for their fish, which are all vital skills they will need when they are released back out into the wild.

Her flipper tag ID number is SL261 (yellow).
Update - 17th January 2024 : Yasmin along with Keanu Reeves have now fully recovered and are at the perfect weight of 30+kg, ready to thrive back in the wild!   They were released on 5th January 2024 at Kennack Sands.
