Adopt-a-Seal® Annette – Nominee for 2019 Patient of the Year
As part of our 2019 Patient of the Year celebration, adopt Annette today and receive this exclusive digital-only Adopt-a-Seal®.
Guadalupe fur seal Annette got his name because he was found with a net around his head. This threatened species has one of the highest rates of entanglements among the seal and sea lion species we rescue.
During his initial exam, our veterinarians noted that Annette was severely underweight. The entanglement likely left him unable to swim well enough to catch food, and he was weak and fatigued.
After being disentangled, Annette recovered quickly from his wounds, though he still had deep wounds around his head that needed to heal. Finally, after over a month of care, Annette was ready to return to his ocean home.
Annette was released with a satellite tag, and our researchers tracked him over 300 miles from where he was released. By studying his movements in the wild, our scientists can learn more about this threatened species and how to protect them.
