CARING FOR SCOTLAND'S SICK, INJURED AND ORPHANED WILDLIFE

17th February 2018

It was a great day for a seal release on Thursday, even if it was a bit on the windy side! Miller and Rose, two grey seals, were released side by side down at Portencross.

Miller, the first to brave the waves, was found at Millport on the Isle of Cumbrae. He weighed a total of 40.2kg on release and as you can see was so eager to get into the water.

Rose was found abandoned and injured on the Isle of Man, and was transported to us a few months ago by the dedicated team at @manxspca_dogs.

Since then, she has done brilliantly in our care, and has put on a whopping amount of weight, her final mass being 46.3kg!! We wish them both well on their journey in the great deep blue sea.
