San Juan Journal Reports on the Seal Release

As reported by Jane K. Fox for the San Juan Journal, here is the video from the seal release during the visit by some of us members of the Whatcom Marine Mammal Stranding Network (WMMSN) to the Wolf Hollow Wildlife Rehabilitation Center near Friday Harbor on San Juan Island.
Other members of our stranding network are included in the video in separate interviews discussing their excitement about the release of these three seals and telling about when the seal, Chitenango, was first found stranded along a beach on Lummi Island and sent to Wolf Hollow for rehabilitation.

Did you know that the Whatcom Marine Mammal Stranding Network has volunteer positions just waiting to be filled? If you share a love and concern for our local marine mammals, there are many ways in which you can help. Currently we have openings in the following areas:
  • Stranding response team members
  • Necropsy technicians
  • Education and and outreach
  • General support

Please contact me, the WMMSN Volunteer Director, at to learn more about how you too can help make a difference.

It's cool stuff!
