Sami the seal pup continues to improve at the GSPCA.
Sami was rescued on a beach in Jersey just after Christmas starving and unwell.
If she hadn’t have been rescued by the JSPCA and BDMLR volunteers she would have certainly perished.
Nearly two months on from her rescue we are pleased to report she is growing stronger each day and eating at least 20 to 30 mackerel and herring.
The team are extremely pleased with her progress at the GSPCA but she is some months off being strong enough and of a healthy weight to be released back to the wild.

For the last 8 weeks the GSPCA have been caring for Sami the grey seal pup who was rescued sick and extremely thin at the end of December in Jersey.
We are pleased to report that Sami is growing stronger each day and eating fish extremely well.
Sami is still a long way off being ready to be released back to the wild and we are appealing for your support to help feed Sami.
Geoff George GSPCA Animal Collection Officer and head carer of marine mammals said "We are so pleased how Sami is doing and especially how well Sami is eating."

We are sad to report that despite keeping Achilles the grey seal pup alive since he was rescued on Saturday he sadly passed away during his operation earlier today.
Achilles had a number of ailments and injuries and required an operation and after two days of intensive care he was taken to the vets earlier today, sadly he didn't make it through the procedure.
All of the team and those involved did everything they could to help the rescued seal pup and all the team have been upset that we weren't able to save him.

Last week an extremely young grey seal pup with no mum in site was rescued in Alderney.
Poppy as she has been called is responding well to treatment and has made it through the first 12 days at the GSPCA.
The are now clear signs of her losing her white coat and we continue to do all we can to ensure she survives.
The GSPCA working with local vets have been giving Poppy around the clock intensive care in a heated isolated seal room at the Shelter and we are pleased to say she is now receiving fish as well as other treatments.

A conger eel not a baby seal but here is advice on what to do if you see a sick seal pup from the GSPCA

Every Autumn the shores of the Bailiwick see grey seal pups being born, and the GSPCA are issuing advice today to help prepare islanders and those walking our shores.
On the weekend we were called out to what was thought to be an injured seal pup, but instead of finding a seal our Ambulance Volunteer Warden Suzy Rose was sadly faced with a dead conger eel that had been washed up.
It was reported locally in the media that we had rescued and were caring for a seal pup at the GSPCA, although this is not true as the conger eel that we were called out to had passed away.

Rio the Common or also known as Harbour Seal Pup has made it through her first night although is still extremely thin and weak.
Named Rio by the team at the Animal Shelter the young seal pup was rescued yesterday by Alderney Wildlife Trust and first taken to Alderney Animal Welfare Society where it was treated by Vet John Knight before being transported to Guernsey.
At only 9kg she is the thinnest seal pup to be taken in at the GSPCA and first Common Seal to be seen in a very long time.
