Join Friends of Fort Flagler on March 16th at 6pm for a virtual program to learn about the faith of the harbor seals rescued in 2021. Last year was the first year SR3 rescued harbor seals for the Salish Sea. Casey Mclean, the Executive Director of SR3 will present an overview of the number of rescues, treatments, rehabilitation process, and releases. Harbor Seal pups are born between June and August in the Salish Sea and they're abandoned or separated from mom for various reasons. The good news is that now we have a dedicated marine animal hospital to help some of these seals. Casey Mclean has over 12 years’ experience working with marine animals, and is the Executive Director of SR3, Washington’s first dedicated marine animal hospital. SR3 is a nonprofit organization that focuses on response, rehabilitation and research of local marine wildlife. The hospital opened the summer of 2021 and immediately started helping harbor seals. is fall they will be opening a marine animal hospital in the Des Moines marina, just south of Seattle.
