Date Rescued: June 2
Rescue Location: Mayne Island
Date Released: August 16
"Tutti Frutti" was rescued from Mayne Island on June 2nd after being observed for several hours alone. Island Wildlife Natural Care Centre was able to rescue the seal pup and stabilize him for a few days before transferring him over to the Marine Mammal Rescue Centre.
Pupdate: June 18 - Since arriving at the Rescue Centre, Tutti Frutti has started to get some teeth but he is still holding on to his lanugo (the soft fur of a premature pup). He also loves chasing his flippers when he is having a bath in his tote!
Pupdate: August 16 - After 67 days in care at the Rescue Centre, Tutti Frutti was released.
By symbolically adopting Tutti Frutti, you will directly support the Marine Mammal Rescue Centre's efforts to rescue, rehabilitate and release marine mammals in distress.
