GREY SEAL PUPPING ALERT

It is Grey Seal Pupping Season. Did you know you can help us to protect our nursing Grey Seals & their pups?
If you are out on beaches over the coming months, please watch for our flippered friends in distress!
Remember:
  • Do not put the seal in the water. Grey Seal Pups with white lanugo coats like the one above cannot swim yet due to the weight of their fur! These coats shed after 3 weeks when they have gained enough blubber to survive the cold seas.
  • Do not touch pups. These animals WILL bite, and carry nasty bacteria in their mouths
  • Keep a distance, 100-200 meters is advised!!
  • It is normal for Grey Seal Mothers to leave their pups to hunt! They will return to their pups if they are left undisturbed & are often watching from a distance. 
  • Keep dogs on a lead and children at a distance for their safety.
  • If you see a seal you think may be orphaned or in distress, take action.
  • Call our 24 Hour Rescue Line for help advice: 087 1955 393
