Date Rescued: July 15
Rescue Location: East Sooke
Date Released: TBD
"Lawsonite" was found in East Sooke by a member of the public who called the Rescue Centre. From there Lawsonite was transported to Vancouver by Harbour Air and picked up by Rescue Centre staff. She was emaciated, but very vocal and seemed otherwise to be in a good condition.
Pupdate: July 16 - A first physical exam was performed today. She's feisty, but overall seems to be settling in. She did not seem to enjoy swimming today, but she appears to be in good spirits.
Pupdate: August 24 - Lawsonite has been in the "big kid pool" for a couple of days now and she's looking really good! She's learning how to compete for fish with two other seals, Passion Fruit and Praline.
By symbolically adopting Lawsonite, you will be directly supporting the Marine Mammal Rescue Centre's efforts to rescue, rehabilitate and release marine mammals in distress.
