Sea Life Sanctuary Appeals For Old Towels For Seal Pups

The animal care team at Scarborough Sea Life Sanctuary wants to get its hands on your dirty laundry…again!

Working with rescued seal pups is a messy business, requiring a large stock of old towels.

Seal expert Lyndsey Crawford said:
“We need towels to throw over the pups’ heads to subdue them when they’re receiving treatment,

“They’re also invaluable for mopping up afterwards and quickly get sodden with dirty fishy-smelling and often bloody sea water.”
Consequently the Sanctuary gets through more towels than the average holiday hotel…and is currently down to its last small bundle.

Local residents threw in their old towels by the bag full to help the seal team a year ago, and now the Sanctuary is once more appealing to their generosity.

Lyndsey said:
“If anyone’s got any old towels they were planning to throw out, we’d be very grateful if they could drop them off here instead,

“It doesn’t matter if they’re a bit threadbare or even a bit grubby, because if they’re not they soon will be.”
The Sanctuary has recently taken in three abandoned and sickly seal pups and is expecting a fresh influx after the coming bout of dirty weather.
