This patient is a Pacific harbor seal, our third most commonly rescued species. We typically see orphaned pups that have stranded during mid-February through late June. Pups are often separated from their mothers due to humans or dogs getting too close and scaring the mother away.
Harbor seal pups are highly susceptible to disease and stress, so they have their very own harbor seal hospital where they can recover away from other patients and the public.
