Oregano the Harbor Seal Swims Free!

Posted on December 13, 2015

On Saturday, December 12, 2015, Oregano the harbor seal was released back into the wild at Wallis Sands State Park in Rye. A cheering crowd of approximately 350 people came out to witness the joyous event and support our Marine Mammal Rescue Team’s work and ocean education efforts!

Oregano was rescued from Seabrook Beach on October 3rd and transported to the National Marine Life Center for much needed care. After 2 months, Oregano fully regained his health and went from a thin 30 pounds to over 70 pounds!

Special thanks go to the National Marine Life Center for bringing Oregano back to NH for us to celebrate his swim back into the big blue!
