Enterprise was rescued on 12th November 2013
Enterprise (AKA Persius E), a male juvenile seal, was rescued from Porth Nanven Cove near St Just on 12th November 2013 by members of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) team and taken to the RSPCA´s West Hatch Wildlife Centre in Taunton, Somerset, for treatment.

The pup was transferred to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary for his next stage of rehabilitation, to learn how to compete for fish with other seals. Hopefully Persius E will be released back into the wild in the next month or so.

Persius E´s flipper tag number is 80077 (orange).

Seal Release - 9th January 2013
Update - 3rd December 2021 : Persius E was spotted at haul-outs along the north coast of Cornwall by a member of the Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust (CSGRT) on 24th November 2014 and 19th January 2015, 9th January 2020, 22nd October 2020, 8th November 2020, 3rd December 2020 and 18th November 2021.

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.
