RTE.ie: Orphaned seal pups find comfort in ‘wetsuit mammas’

Orphaned seal pups at Seal Rescue Ireland in Co Wexford have been finding comfort in upcycled “wetsuit mammas”.

The innovative creations are made from old wetsuits that would otherwise end up in landfill. Inside, there is a large recycled waterproof lining filled with off cuts of other pre-loved wetsuits.

Made by designer Lynn Haughton, she tries to get the “wetsuit mammas” to look and feel as close to an adult seal as possible.
