We Never Had Passengers Like This Before!

During the end of August and the beginning of September, Project O teamed up with Mystic Marinelife Aquarium staff to release some seal pups back into the wild. The seals had been abandoned by their mother and aquarium staff took care of the seal pups until they were old enough to catch live fish on their own. They spent their ride on the Enviro-lab in a cage, for everyone's safety and were released into Fishers Island Sound. Some of them circled the boat a few times, reluctant to leave, others swam away as soon as they hit the water.
