Sami a grey seal pup was rescued on a beach in Jersey just after Christmas starving and unwell and the GSPCA are hugely grateful to SandpiperCI who are kindly helping with her care.

If Sami hadn’t have been rescued by the JSPCA and BDMLR volunteers she would have certainly perished.

Nearly three months on from her rescue we the team at the GSPCA can’t believe how much she has grown and how great her appetite now is after her near death experience.

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.

Submitted by Steve on 12:01, 3rd Jul, 2016 | 0

A week back Friday a young lady from the Youth Commission North Youth Centre joined the GSPCA team on the Bumblebee boat to Jethou to release Bonnie the grey seal pup.

Bethany became a very lucky lady after the winner of a competition to join the release was unable to come and he donated it to a young deserving person.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager contacted the Youth Commission to see who they thought would benefit from this once in a life time opportunity and they asked Bethany to join the team.
