Capturing Vulnerability

Some of the 120 or so seal pups which were washed off the rocks in the severe storms the Eastern Cape experienced this festive season. They were brought into Bayworld where staff and volunteers looked after them until the weather calmed down enough to release them safely. 

Care for the month old pups included tubing them daily with supplements and to help keep them hydrated. It is hoped that the mothers will each find their little pup and as many as possible will survive. This will be monitored as all of them have been tagged.

How could you not love them and hope they survive at any costs when they look at you like this?
