Bee’s Poem of the Day: Seal Baby

Hello out there, today I share something magical with you.

We walked our dog this morning at the beach and suddenly saw a woman walking rather determined towards the sea defences. She took photos of something.

When we came closer we saw it was a seal baby.

The people from Seal Watch were already there saying it was ok but no mum in sight so they got the rescue people in because its too young to swim.

It was so cute and magical

They said on the news recently that many seal babies have died on British beaches because they have encounters with dogs which stresses them out and they die. Or walkers try to get them into the sea not knowing they can’t swim yet and so they drown. Older seal youngsters often rest on beaches before they keep on swimming as long as they are left alone.

So please, if you see a young seal on the beach leave it alone and make sure your dogs leave it alone too. Also contact seal rescue organisations if they are obviously injured or if you are not sure about its health. There are posters with the numbers for them on many beaches or contact the RSPCA.

But please don’t go close, touch it or try to get it back into the sea. Thanks!
