Field Frame Friday: Harbor Seal Class of 2021

The best part of my field season is seeing the subjects that I worked with while they were in rehabilitation get released back into the ocean! These harbor seal pups came to The Marine Mammal Center (MMC) in Sausaltio, CA as young as a few days old, malnourished, and separated from their moms. But after a few months of dedicated veterinary care and lots of nutrient-rich fish at the MMC, these pups fatten up enough to be able to bounce back into the ocean.
