Sami the seal pup continues with her hungry appetite - see how you can help her care at the GSPCA

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.

Sami the seal pup eating on her own at the GSPCA - could you help donate to feed her fish and the other animals in our care

Submitted by Steve on 15:27, 6th Jan, 2017 | 0

We are pleased to announce that Sami the seal pup rescued in jersey between Christmas and New Years has started eating fish all on her own.

She is extremely thin so it will take months before she is strong enough to release to the wild and it would be wonderful if you could help donate to her care to help towards the fish she will need as well as help the hundreds of other animals in our care.

We will of course keep you up to date with her progress.

A grey seal pup was found stranded at the high tide mark on Tuesday 27th December at Bonne Nuit Bay.  The JSPCA, who were initially called by a dog walker that morning, made a call for the BDMLR (British Divers Marine Life Rescue) to come and assess the pup.

Donna de Gruchy (British Divers Marine Life Rescue, Channel Isles coordinator) said “The pup was found to be a Grey seal (common on our offshore reefs), with a moulted coat indicating the pup would now be weaned from its mother."
