Sanctuaries & Rescue Centres
Sanctuaries and rescue centres are fantastic and work hard to heal and care for injured/ sick wildlife. In the past we have supported the Marine Mammal Rescue Centre for their great work and this month we are looking a little closer to home!
If you come across a sick or injured marine mammal, then there are a few things to keep in mind:
DON'T TOUCH — Do not touch, pick up or feed the animal. Do not return the animal to the water.
OBSERVE — Observe the animal from a distance of at least 50 feet. Keep people and dogs away.
DESCRIBE — Note physical characteristics such as size, presence of external ears and fur color. Assess the animal's condition: Is it weak or skinny? Does it have any open wounds? Look for any obvious identification tags or markings.
LOCATE — Determine the animal's exact location for accurate reporting.
CALL — Call The Marine Mammal Center with as much information as you have.
Cornish Seal Sanctuary
The Cornish Seal Sanctuary is a charity very close to home, based in the beautiful Cornwall they do amazing work in rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing sick or injured seals around the South West. They not only help to rehabilitated and release but also provide a permanent home with ongoing care for animals that cannot be released back into the wild.
As you are likely very aware, 2020 was an incredibly hard year for many groups, and the Cornish Seal Sanctuary is no different. They are facing a tough winter season at the moment and we want to help out as best we can, which is why we have chosen them as our final cause to support this year! 10% of all sales in December went to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, thanks to our customers support we were able to donate $260!
If you can or want to donate directly then you can on their website.
