Marlin - Resident Grey Seal
Marlin MARLIN, a male grey seal, was rescued from Sennen Cove on 29th January 2002.

He was very malnourished and was found with netting around his body. Luckily, the netting had caused no injuries so it was just a case of putting weight on him.

Marlin took to eating fish for himself very quickly and soon piled on the pounds in the hospital.
However, when he was transferred to the convalescent pool with the other pups, the animal care team soon realised that something was wrong. Marlin did not feed very well and he seemed to shy away from the other pups if they were near him.

He started to lose weight and so the vet was called. Their suspicions were confirmed, unfortunately Marlin is completely blind.
