Orphaned Seal Pup Released Into The Wild After Being Nursed Back To Health

An orphaned seal pup who was found emaciated on a beach earlier this year has been released into the sea after making a full recovery. A member of the public discovered the pup at Binnion Beach on the northwestern coast of Ireland in January, and called Seal Rescue Ireland for help. The animal rescue charity named her Atria, after Alpha Trianguli Australis, the brightest star in the southern constellation of Triangulum Australe. After caring for Atria for around four months, the charity released her back into the wild on Saturday, at Kiltennel Beach, approximately 3 miles from where she was originally found. She was released with Ptolemy, another pup the charity had cared for since February.
