Our local Virginia Beach Aquarium recently released a seal named Beetle back into the wild after rehabilitating him & riding the seal of infection. The event was made public so of course I took my kids to watch! We are aquarium members, and it's actually one of my son's favorite places to go; so once I heard I made plans to go.
Although it was super hot at just ten am, the wait and heat was well worth it. It was heartwarming to witness a seal go back into their natural habitat. Beetle adorably went into the water, back out and then back in for a final goodbye.
The seal which I managed to get a few pictures of, is tracked and I can't wait to show my toddler where Beetle has gone. Definitely an adventure and leanring experience for Brody.
