Update and Link to Rescued Seal

News from my neighbor Deb above. She and her husband Ben rescued the Harbor Seal on Sunday as seen below in my blog post. 
Here is a link to updates on the seal until he is released from the Sea Life Center in Seward later this summer. 
They were met by two vets from the SLC who gave the pup an examination after placing him on a clean white towel. (The vets met them half way so they didn't have to drive all the way to Seward.) They then inserted a feeding tube into his stomach and gave him seal pup pediolyte which seemed to satisfy him. Ben and Deb were told they could pick his name and the guidelines were 'wine and cheese' this year so they picked Port. Turns out this seal is a male. They get special passes to visit Port and also to be present at his release later this summer. It was a relief for them to find out he won't be kept in captivity.

THANK YOU for the update on 'Port' which I think is a perfect name!! I'm so thankful that he's found his way--Seward brings back a lot of memories for me from when we lived in Anchorage....

Wow, how great that they'll be able to visit him and also be there when he is released. That was so nice that they were able to pick his name and Port is a perfect fit for a seal that was found like he was.
