Seals are coming to the city


The National Sea Life Centre in Birmingham is set to welcome a pair of rescued seals to the City, homing them in their state-of-the-art Mammal Rescue Facility and under the care and watch of a specialist welfare team from early April.

Miley and Boo, who have medical conditions which will prevent them from ever surviving in the wild, will be fostered from Sea Life Centres in Hunstanton and Scarborough respectively over the coming weeks in order to make critical space within rehabilitation hospitals for the coastal sites during their heightened “pup season”, when demand for rescues of common seals in Britain is at an all-time high.

Birmingham’s new temperature-controlled rescue facility, which was revealed by the National Sea Life Centre earlier this month, was identified by Animal Health Officials as the perfect respite – and a safe, indoor environment which Miley & Boo have become accustomed to.
