February’s Animal Attraction | Seal
Jersey is a 1-year-old female grey seal pup rescued from the New Jersey seashore. She was deemed non-releasable back into the wild after becoming too friendly with fishermen and beachgoers and arrived from the Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine, N.J. in late November. Named by the Detroit Zoo's animal care staff, Jersey is described as smart, energetic and very sweet. She joins five other rescues in the Arctic Ring of Life, including grey seals Kiinaq and Georgie, harp seal Pequot and harbor seals Sidney and Freita.
