UNE's Marine Animal Rehabilitation Center Saturday, July 20, 2013 at Granite Point Beach in Curtis Cove in Biddeford. Six seals were released all together, the largest release for the center, and the first pup release of the year. All the pups were under a week old when they were brought to the center, and had been found weak and in need of special care. Now, at about three months old, the seals have learned how to eat fish, and have gained enough weight to be released.

All six pups were under a week old when they were found, and are now approximately three months old. They were given special care as some were born prematurely, and were then taught how to eat fish so they would gain enough weight to be released.
