Ray was rescued from Widemouth bay 12th of October 2001, at approximately 3 weeks of age. He was malnourished and found at the top end of the beach, as far away from the water as possible, with his nose pressed up against the side of a rock face. When he first arrived at the sanctuary it was apparent that his behaviour and the shape of his head were a little different to other seals. It is thought he suffered trauma to this area as a pup, probably after being caught in a storm and knocked into some rocks.
His injuries mean he displays behaviour which is different from other seals but this is what makes Ray one of our most famous seals at the Sanctuary.
