Harp Seal Rescue at Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes

Members of the Marine Education Research and Rehabilitation (MERR) Institute rescued a stranded harp seal earlier this week at Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes. According to MERR, the one-year-old female had a few minor injuries and was slightly underweight but alert. She had been eating a little bit of sand. If you encounter a seal resting on the beach or elsewhere, MERR asks that you contact them immediately at 302-228-5029, and keep a distance of 150 feet from the animal.
