The Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA) worked to heal Hispi - a rare breed the likes of which have only been sighted in the UK up to 30 times in the last century.

Ringed seals are most often spotted in Arctic waters but Hispi, who was between six and eight weeks old when he was spotted in August, was found lethargic and with multiple abrasions at Cove Bay harbour in Aberdeen.

He was then taken to the charity’s national wildlife rescue centre for treatment.

Two months later, the team flew to Shetland to release the pup with the help of the Civil Air Support Charity in hopes he would be able to make his way from the most northern Scottish island back home.

Sarah Beattie, the assistant manager of the rescue centre, travelled north with Hispi.

“We’re delighted to be able to release Hispi back into the wild where he belongs,” she said.
