“Ship” and “Willard” return to sea tomorrow
Last month, our friends at Marine Mammals of Maine rescued two harp seals in need of medical attention. ”Ship” was found hiding under a picnic table at Shipwreck Cove in Cape Elizabeth. He was dehydrated and in need of care for an injured eye. ”Willard” was found resting at Willard Beach in South Portland. She was tired, thin and very dehydrated. Both animals were brought to MARC for care and are now ready to return to the wild. Please join us as we send them on their way.
