Still Saving Seals………

Our season may have finished but the rescue team are still responding to calls and saving pups and seals on our beach.

Lazy River was rescued from Waxham on 2 February 2020 very underweight and lethargic. It had been blue sprayed the day before for monitoring but on checking the next day it appeared to have not moved and there were signs of blood on its mouth. The rescue team managed to find it a spot at RSPCA East Winch where it was named Lazy River and weighed in at 14.6kgs

Other rescues that have taken place are from the beach at Great Yarmouth where the rescue team were assisted by two of our wardens Ian and Linda. The small pup was relocated to a quiet part of the beach at Horsey.
