A total of eleven egg-cases are waiting to hatch at the Hastings Blue Reef Aquarium.
The eggs, which were laid at their sister-aquarium in Bristol as part of a captive breeding programme, belong to the undulate ray which is now considered to be endangered in the wild.
The eggs should start to hatch out over the summer.
Blue Reef’s Curator Chris Ireland said: “Many species of European sharks and rays are increasingly coming under threat of extinction in the wild. It would be great if we were able to successfully breed this particular species in captivity."
RSPCA inspectors have collected several birds caught in an oil spillage on the north Kent coast. The birds were found covered in thick, black sticky fuel oil. They include eight red throated divers, two of which had to be put to sleep to end their suffering, two guillemots and a dunlin which died.
All came from the Ramsgate harbour area except for one of the divers which was picked up in Rye harbour. They are being cared for by the RSPCA Mallydams Wildlife centre in Hastings.
RSPCA wildlife supervisor Richard Thompson said: “Birds like these, that are used to spending all their lives on the water, are difficult for us to manage but we have the expertise and will do our best for them.
