Meet Tinkerbell!!

Our first common seal pup of the season has arrived!!!!!! :) And with this summer season begins our new name theme... Disney!!!

Tinkerbell was found in Kinvarra, Co Galway on 17th June 2016 by Patricia Haugaard who also transported her the whole way to our centre in Courtown.


She is very tiny at 6.5kg, and very under weight, likely separated from mum soon after Birth and sadly spending several days alone and starving. She is around 7 days old.


Tinkerbell has responded well to initial fluid therapy and is now being tube fed fish soup until she is another week or so old and can begin eating full fish.

She is a little sweety and a real fighter!
