Rehabilitated harbor seals float in the waters of the Howe Sound after being released back into the wild by the Vancouver Aquarium's Marine Mammal Rescue Centre in Porteau Cove, B.C.. The center released 14 seals back into the wild north of Vancouver.
This harbor seal pup was found stranded in Seward, Alaska, in May, and when her mother had not returned 24 hours later, workers at the Alaska SeaLife Center intervened. They named the little girl Gouda swimming. The seal will remain at the wildlife center until she’s healthy enough to be released back into the wild.
