|It is with much sadness that we have to inform all our supporters of the loss of Scooby. He died of natural causes after a long and happy life at the sanctuary, where he was a real character. He was a favourite with all our staff and visitors. He had a special way of attracting our attention during feeding time, which started with him slapping his side with one of his flippers, and this would get louder and louder until we gave him a fish.
Scooby came to Gweek with Ken Jones in 1976 when he moved from St Agnes. Ken rescued him in 1971, making Scooby nearly 30 years old.
