Three more seals were released on September 19th for the 2014 season.
Rajka (names are apple varieties this year!) was seen alone on Locust Beach near Bellingham for more than 24 hours. The beach was busy with lots of people and dogs. He was brought to us thin and dehydrated, just 18.7 pounds and about 10 days old.
Cameo was found alone in Friday Harbor Marina, following boats and approaching people. She was also brought to us thin, weak, and dehydrated. She weighed just 17.4 pounds and was only about 2 days old.
Liberty was brought to us from Lummi Island where she was found alone on a beach. She was about 18.9 pounds and about 10 days old. Along with being thin and dehydrated, she had a right eye injury and swelling on her head.
All three seals were released weighing over 50 pounds.
Just before release, a small, light-weight, hat-tag is glued to the fur on the tops of their heads for easy spotting. If you happen to see a seal with a funny hat, you can help by calling the marine mammal stranding network hotline (1 800 562 8832) to report the sighting.

Jack is the gentle canine meeter and greeter at the Barking Bird store in Friday Harbor. To celebrate his 11th birthday on Oct 11th, Judith (Jack’s Mom and one of Wolf Hollow’s founders) invites you all to join them at the store for a little party from 2-4pm. Instead of birthday gifts, Jack invites you to donate an item from the Wolf Hollow Wish List. Check out the Barking Bird facebook page or visit the store for more details.
Shona and Tate took our education booth to this fun event on Sept 6th. They enjoyed the beautiful venue with views across the water to Mt Baker, the music and entertainment, the perfect weather and talking with lots of people who wanted to find out more about what we do at Wolf Hollow.
