Bella and Scarlett both took to the water like, well, seals to water! They raced to the ocean and began playing in the surf. Here's a great photo of Bella at the release by Kat Hanafin of @thenauticalcollection.

Meet Seallen Degeneres! (That's right, Ellen DeGeneres!) Seallen was collected by our friends at Allied Whale at the College of the Atlantic from Islesboro, Maine, after there was confirmed abandonment from mom. Seallen is only a little under two weeks old as she starts her rehabilitation to learn to swim, forage and to hopefully be released back to the wild. #sealebrities @theellenshow

Today Alex was at #fancyfoodshow  and me and Sofia went to #pier39 to check out the Sea-lebrities. Whenever I watch at animals (especially not captive ones) I immediately start feeling calmer and more connected. 
Саша сегодня уже вовсю работал на выставке, а мы с Соней поехали созерцать морских львов на пирсе 39. Они там живут на этих понтонах уже с 1989 года. Переселились туда после землетрясения из своего прежнего ареала. Общество по защите морских животных в 1990 г посоветовало администрации пирса их не выгонять, и львы пустили в понтоны корни. Лежат там все вперемежку, галдят, дерутся и играют 💕.

Here’s the pictorial story of Bella saying goodbye to me. [See last post for actual story] .
.
These are posted in *actual* chronological order.
.
.
The first image she was headed out to sea, then turned around to come ashore. 
I love the last image... her last look back at me, through slurpee waves; the last big Bella smile I’d ever see. 
Take care sweet baby! .

So happy to see our rescued seal Bella return to the wild after successful treatment in this great photo by @thenauticalcollection. Bella was picked up by our Marine Mammal Rescue team in Rye back in October with serious facial wounds and taken to @nationalmarinelifecenter for rehabilitation. Enjoy your new freedom, Bella!

The last two Sealebrities of 2017, Bella LugoSEAL & Scarlett JohansSEAL, have been released. I think of them all often, but some you think of more than others. Bella is one of those seals that I'll always wonder about. Swim #wildandfree ocean friends.

BELLA! The @nationalmarinelifecenter rescued this seal in October, and I fell in love with her instantly. Her prognosis was not good, but thankfully, it turns out, she is a fighter. As she got better each day, her adorable little personality came out more and more. Due to her illness, some of her fur was removed on her face; that’s why it looks like she’s always smiling. 
Today Bella was released into the sea... and instead of going straight ahead (like Scarlet did) she surfed in the slurpee waves, parallel to the shore. I wanted to get further down the beach, to get the  angle of her coming towards me, and because I had run ahead, no other person was anywhere near me. She stopped swimming, came over the slushee snow bank, then stopped and posed here, just for me. Then she turned around, back over the seasnowbank, and right before she plopped back into the ocean, she gave one last look back to me over her shoulder, before swimming into the slurpee waves for good. 
Stay safe Bella! I love you!

The release is ON! Scarlett as a Bella will be released today, Sunday, January 7, 1pm, Scusett Beach. 
For those joining us in person, please dress warmly in layers! While it's perfect seal weather outside, temperatures will be cold. As you can see, Scarlett and Bella have a nice thick blubber layer, but we humans need to protect ourselves. Also, the parking lot and beach boardwalk are icy. Please plan accordingly and wear good boots! 
We will be broadcasting the release on our Facebook page, so if you can't make it in person we hope you will join us there!

Happy Seal Saturday! Just over two months in rehabilitation and Bella has defied the odds and she is now ready to return back home to the wild. 
Throughout her time in rehabilitation Bella's personality and fighting spirit has won the hearts of many of our staff, volunteers and fans. Join us as we take a look back at some of Bella's milestones during her time in rehabilitation from her admit exam, to debriding of her facial wound, healing, and finally her pre-release exam! **WARNING: Some photos in the beginning of the album are a bit graphic but we wanted to include them to show the severity of Bella's condition.
