Crab-eater seals released into deep water

Two crab eater seals, that washed up independently of each other, coincidentally on the same day, have been released south of the continental shelf in deep water, by a team from Bayworld in Port Elizabeth. One seal washed up along the KwaZulu-Natal coastline, and the other seal along the Eastern Cape coastline earlier 2021.

The seals hail from Antartica.
