Say Hello to Ray...


Hi there! My name is Ray and I’m a grey seal. I was just a nipper when I was picked up from Widemouth Bay on the 12th of October 2001 at just 3 weeks of age. The team found me at the top end of the beach pressed up against the side of a rock face. I’m a little different compared to my seal buddies because I have brain damage. When I was in the wild, there was a bad storm and I was caught up in rough seas. I was thrown against the rocks which caused a nasty head injury, so I still need a bit of help everyday from the staff here at the Sanctuary. The team keep a close eye on me to see how I get on with the other seals, but they don’t need to worry too much, as my new girlfriend Sheba looks after me in the pool!
