Seal Pup Rescued

/ 97.3 The Eagle

Vancouver Aquarium officials say a northern fur seal pup is being nursed back to health after being rescued off the coast of Vancouver Island. Lindsaye Akhurst — manager of the aquarium’s Marine Mammal Rescue Centre — says the pup was emaciated and dehydrated when it arrived, but it is doing better now. The aquarium says the seven-month-old pup was spotted by the shore near the Ahousaht First Nation, where there is heavy boat traffic. It says the seals are usually found 20 to 150 kilometres offshore in B-C during their feeding season between January and June.
