Mystic Aquarium is proud to announce the release of Mica, an approximately 1-2 year old male harp seal rescued from Bristol, ME on September 28, 2015 by the Marine Mammals of Maine.

The release will take place at Blue Shutters Beach, East Beach Rd., Charlestown, 10:00  AM, Friday, April 22, 2016.

Having been found mildly dehydrated and with pneumonia, Mica arrived at Mystic Aquarium’s Animal Rescue Clinic weighing 53 lbs. 

Now weighing more than 65 lbs. and completely rehabilitated, Mica is ready for release.

Please join the celebration of the return of this seal to his ocean environment.
