Jenga, Monopoly and Kerplunk
arrived on 16th January 2008

Jenga, Monopoly and Kerplunk were rescued by the RSPCA and transferred to us on 16th of January 2008 for their final stage of rehabilitation and then release back into the wild.

These three seals are a little bit more interested in people then the other seals. These guys will spend a few weeks in the common seal pool before being moved into the convalescent pool with the other rescued pups. With more seals in this pool, the pups will soon realise that seals are good and people are bad, and will hopefully be released back into the wild fully rehabilitated.

Update: 8th February 2008 - Jenga, Monopoly and Kerplunk have been moved into the convalescent pool.

Members of the CSGRT volunteer hundreds of hours of their own time to photo, identify, carry out surveys, monitor and watch over the seals around the Cornish coast.

Each seal´s fur pattern is unique and enables the CSGRT volunteers track them for life. Seals face many challenges, yet we all depend on them to balance our marine ecosystem, this is essential to make the oxygen we breathe. Seals are our globally rare wildlife tourist attraction, helping diversify coastal economic prosperity.
