Reason for Rehabilitation: #25 was a victim of maternal separation. She arrived at MARC very undernourished. Staff and volunteers worked to get #25 eating whole fish quickly to help put on a nice coat of blubber and avoid behavioral problems linked with habituation. Once she gained sufficient weight, she was deemed healthy for release. On July 23, 2006 she was tagged and released at Granite Point in Biddeford, Maine.
