Aquarium releases rescued seal back into habitat

The National Aquarium says it released a harp seal rescued from Ocean City after severe dehydration

TOWSON, Md. -- The National Aquarium has released a harp seal rescued from Ocean City after severe dehydration.

During her nearly three weeks of rehabilitation at the aquarium, Amelia was regularly interacting with enrichment items and puzzle feeders helping to sharpen up foraging skills before her release to a natural habitat, the aquarium said.

Two other seals - Huckleberry Finn, a gray seal rescued from Assateague State Park, and Pippi Longstocking, a gray seal pup rescued from Dewey Beach - will remain with the aquarium until they are healthy enough to return to the ocean.
