Sealís epic journey to the North Coast thumbnailRescued seals Hans and Albert were realeased by Exploris at Ballintoy Harbour last week.

HANS and ALBERT the seals have recently been released in Ballintoy in what was the first seal release of the season!
Joe Breen, DAERA Marine and Fisheries Division said: "DAERA has had a long and successful partnership with Exploris in the protection and conservation of Northern Ireland's seal populations. I still remember the day we were called out to Albert, a small sad individual with a cut to his face who was grossly underweight. It's hard to imagine that when you see his condition now, and comforting to know that he is fit and well, and ready to be released back into his natural wild environment." Albert of course, is named after the world-renowned Albert Einstein.
