First seal pup of this winter received in Pieterburen

On Thursday, Seal Center Pieterburen received the first gray seal pup of this winter. The puppy probably ended up on a busy beach in Vlieland due to the stormy weather. After some time of observation it was clear that the mother would not come back and that the relative pressure was also very stressful. After the intake by the vets of Pieterburen it turned out that it was a female of only a few days old, because she still had a piece of umbilical cord.

In December 2021 it will be exactly 50 years ago that the first seal was taken care of in Pieterburen. That’s why the center celebrates all year round, and that includes, of course, other delicious pastries! With that in mind, the team of the Seal Center has named the puppy Charlie, after the well-known book & movie “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”. And moreover, just like in the story, there is also a golden ticket to be won. In this case for a release of seals.

The center also calls for people to especially keep their distance from seals. At least 30 meters. That is better anyway, but especially necessary in this sensitive period. Gray seal pups stay on land for the first few weeks and the mother sometimes goes out to hunt for herself. Well-intentioned actions by the public, for example “pushing the puppy back into the water”, often lead to disruption of the suckling process, resulting in shelter. In addition, with effect from the Seal Agreement in July 2020, it is forbidden to touch seals at all, with the exception of specially trained seal keepers.

Meanwhile, Charlie will be on display to the public as long as the center is open to visitors. Moreover, as in previous years, Charlie will also be followed on all social media channels of the center.
