Shamrock, a northern elephant seal, pictured here with her pup, was admitted to The Marine Mammal Center suffering from weakness and a mild skin disease. After some much-needed care and rest, she was healthy enough to go back to the wild and was released at an elephant seal rookery in Point Reyes National Seashore.
Shamrock, like all of our patients, received a small orange identification tag which helped us spot her after she was released. Amazingly, a few years later, she was observed at Point Reyes National Seashore with a pup of her own, looking healthy and strong!
When you adopt this past patient, you'll receive a personalized 7in. x 5in. physical adoption certificate with the animal's photo and story on the back. Your symbolic adoption will make a difference in the lives of current and future patients.
This is a physical product that will be mailed to you and does not come with a digital certificate. For downloadable Adopt-a-Seal® options, visit our Digital Downloads page!
