What to do if you find a seal pup alone on a beach:
- Do not assume a lone seal pup is abandoned, pups are often left on or near a beach while their mother hunts.
- Leave the animal alone and watch from a distance (unless you have sited a dead adult female in the area). Wild animals are easily stressed so stay back and hidden, if possible. Pups can bite so do not attempt to touch them.
- Before assuming a seal pup is an orphan, please call MARS at 250-337-2021
