Harbor Seal pup at PAWS Wildlife Center

At PAWS Wildlife Center they are busy rehabilitating their first Harbor Seal pup of the season.

Do you know what to do if you come across a lone pup on one of our beaches? For their safety and yours, do not touch!
The mother leaves the pup high in the sand, while she goes out to hunt. The pup is fine, as long as people leave it alone.

However, if you believe a seal pup or other marine mammal is clearly in distress or injured, find out how to get the right help here.
