Pumpkin the harbor seal released!

Ashley Stokes  |  NH Marine Mammal Rescue Coordinator

We have some great news to share with you today: our last remaining seal from the 2015 season that has been receiving care from our friends at Mystic Aquarium, is getting released today! Pumpkin, the juvenile harbor seal was rescued from Crane Beach in Ipswich, MA on September 15th, was suffering from severe predation wounds to the face. For the last 6 months she has been healing from those wounds, putting on weight, and getting ready for her release back into the wild.

Special thanks to our friends at Mystic Aquarium for rehabilitating this little girl!
