This is one of the three elephant seal pups rescued today by Marine Animal Rescue. This young seal has a small, but deep wound around his throat area.

The other seals were very thin, tired and also suffered from some small wounds and lacerations.

All the pups were immediately transported to the care center for medical attention.

MAR conducted 59 marine mammal rescues in April.
