#DontTrashLISound – 16 (Summer 2019)

#LISound and Rhode Island are fortunate to have the Mystic Aquarium Animal Rescue Clinic around to help injured marine wildlife. In April, a grey seal was found entangled with fiber around its neck in Block Island. First responders transported the seal to the clinic, and staff freed the seal from the entanglement. Thankfully, the skin was not cut underneath. Please be careful not to throw trash near #LISound, including plastic materials that can entangle wildlife. #DontTrashLISound and make sure that animals don’t get entangle in plastic. Here’s a video link to see the seal being released back into the water in Charlestown, RI. http://ow.ly/7bbs50uZKvB
