Adopt Poppy, a northern fur seal
Weak and exhausted, Poppy, a northern fur seal pup, swam into San Francisco Bay and took a rest at a very busy Berkeley marina. Listed as a vulnerable species, northern fur seals spend most of their lives at sea and rarely come ashore on mainland beaches. Thankfully, several boaters noticed the malnourished pup and contacted the Center. After two and a half months of care, Poppy doubled her weight and resumed the feisty behavior typical of a healthy fur seal. She was released back into the wild and will hopefully produce offspring, helping to replenish the fur seal population.
When you adopt Poppy, you’ll receive a personalized adoption certificate with her photo and story.
