Garnett's Story

Weighing only 17 pounds, Pacific harbor seal Garnett was scooped out of the water by a well-meaning boater. Only days old, the small pup appeared quite healthy and should never have been removed from his natural habitat. Unfortunately, pups like Garnett are frequently picked up by beachgoers who mistake them for orphans.  In reality, their mothers are simply busy foraging for food!

When Garnett arrived at the Center, volunteers began tube-feeding him a special formula to help him grow strong and healthy. As he got stronger, he attended fish school, during which volunteers taught him how to identify, catch and eat live fish--a prerequisite for release back into the wild. After a few months of loving care, Garnett was released at Point Reyes National Seashore.
