Pongo and Perdita

Both pups were rescued on 11th July 2016 in Northern Ireland. Pongo a male common seal was found in Ballykinler Co Down & Perdita a female common seal was found in Carrickfergus Co Antrim.


They were taken to Exploris Aquarium where they spent the next few days in each others company.

Both these cuties were around 7-10 days old when found. Pongo weighed 9.5kg & Perdita 8.5kg.

Due to the influx of pups that Exploris received that week we offered to help out. So on 15th of July these 2 were transported to our centre in Courtown where they will spend the next few months until they are ready to be released back into the wild.
They have been together since they were rescued and they are inseparable.

At the minute we are tube feeding both pups and hopefully it will not be long before they are eating on their own.

We will keep you updated on the progress of Pongo & Perdita so stay tuned.
