A pair of twin grey seals that were returned to the wild after four months of care, were videotaped splashing in the ocean water for the first time. 

The baby seals were rescued by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) off the east coast of England in December, after they were abandoned by their mother.  

Awwww… The moment the world’s first recorded wild grey seal twins returned to the wild.

The seals are the first recorded pair of grey seal twins in the world. 

“It is amazing to think that we have helped to rear the world’s first recorded wild-born twin grey seals,” said Alison Charles, a manager for the Society.  


The Royal Society in East Winch has taken care of 66 seal pups in its hospital this season, and currently 50 seals are in its care.
