Charleston Chew returns to the Sea.  

Back in August, we introduced Charleston Chew, a young female harbor seal that escaped the teeth of a shark and arrived at MARC for care (thanks to our friends at Marine Mammals of Maine).  Five months later, “Charlie” is ready to brave the wild once again.  Please join us tomorrow as we say farewell!
