Runt and Friends Release TOMORROW

Young harbor seal pups to be released tomorrow!

Join us tomorrow during your lunch break as we send five more healthy, happy harbor seal pups back to sea.  These little pups have spent months growing, overcoming medical issues and learning to hunt under the care of the staff, interns and volunteers at the Marine Animal Rehabilitation Center.  We are so thrilled and ready to send them off into the wild.  We hope you’ll join us for this exciting occasion.

Remember Runt?  Runt was a one-month premature harbor seal pup admitted to MARC in early April after monitoring and collection by the College of the Atlantic’s Allied Whale response program.  Check out how tiny he was when he first arrived!
