Research done by Sealcentre Pieterburen biologists Beatriz Rapado Tamarit and Marga Mendez Arostegui under the supervision of Ton Groothuis, Professor behavioural biology of the University of Groningen, has some remarkable results and gives a new insight into the bond between mothers and pups of Common seals (Phoca vitulina). Amongst other, the researchers have found that pups suckle from different mothers and that they are left alone for hours. This has strong implications on the current rehabilitation policy in the Netherlands.
