Pumpkin - Resident Grey Seal
Pumpkin was rescued in Guernsey by the GSPCA and was transferred to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary on the 18th of November 2010 for his next stage of rehabilitation and to learn how to compete for fish with other seals.

When Pumpkin arrived, he weighed 28k.

Pumpkin celebrated his 6th birthday on 31st October 2016 with a fantastic ice-fish cake made by Natalie, Head of Enrichment and a member of the Animal Care Team.

Natalie decided to make Pumpkin a very special birthday cake, as it is Halloween and also his 6th Birthday, using ice, fish and food colouring to make it bright and colourful!

Pumpkin is a lively character who adores toys, especially during training sessions.   Instead of following orders, he´d rather bring you a pool full of toys, proving that swimming and playing are way more fun than those tedious health checks.

When it´s snack time, Pumpkin isn´t shy about expressing his impatience with huffs and puffs, but it´s all worth it to see those fish appear a little quicker. Anything that isn´t toy-related can be met with a sceptical reaction - it´s all about the fun for Pumpkin!
Happy  13th Birthday Pumpkin
We all enjoy a slice or two of Christmas Cake and so does Pumpkin and his gang who got their very own Ice Christmas Cake made by the Wonderful Animal Care Team!
