Young Seals Released

All four of the Harbor Seal pups we cared for throughout the summer were released on Sept 11th.
These pups were all brought to Wolf Hollow by San Juan County Marine Mammal Stranding Network in late June and July, but they came from many different parts of the county. The first orphaned/separated pup was found on Sucia, the second on Jones, the third on San Juan, and the last pup was brought over from Johns Island. They were only a few days old, were thin and weak and had a range of wounds and infections, but after a few weeks of treatment and care they had recovered and were soon eating lots of fish and rapidly gaining weight.
By early September they were fat, healthy and ready for life back in the wild.
