Animal Rescue Update: Luna

Luna, the juvenile grey seal in our care, continues to make progress in rehabilitation!

Published July 19, 2017

Luna had a full medical exam last week, and continues to show signs of improvement in her health. After stranding in Ocean City, Maryland in May, Luna was admitted for the treatment of pneumonia, dehydration, lungworms and lacerations. luna-seal-swimming-rehab

Since then, our Animal Rescue and Animal Health teams have been closely monitoring her progress. Luna’s most recent exam indicated to our staff that her condition has improved, but she still needs to remain in rehab for a few more weeks to fully recover.luna-seal-swimming-with-ball

While in rehab, Luna has gained 20 pounds! She enjoys the foraging enrichment activities that our staff uses to help her hone her natural instincts.

Stay tuned for more updates about Luna!
