Release of Two “Cape Elizabeth Seals”

March 16, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

You’re invited! On Thursday, March 16 Marine Mammals of Maine (MMoME) will release two seals that stranded in Cape Elizabeth, Maine earlier this year to the wild. 

You might remember our Friday Night Video about one of these seals who was infamously found wandering in the road by a plow truck driver during a January storm. The other had stranded in a similar neighborhood earlier that same month. Both entered MMoME’s rehabilitation facility in Brunswick underweight and required around the clock care including multiple treatments and feedings a day. After learning to eat fish, they graduated to a larger enclosure, which they have shared for the past several weeks, and are now healthy enough to return to the wild.

You’re invited to attend the release, which will take place beginning at 11 a.m. sharp at Head Beach in Phippsburg, Maine. Head Beach is being opened to the public by the Wyman family for this event and MMoME requests that attendees be respectful of this private property by staying on designated paths, carrying in/carrying out and observing the no pets rule.
