“Cluse” who came to us from Cape Lookout via the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores has recovered well from pneumonia and a poor appetite.  Weighing in at nearly 100 pounds, Cluse is raring to go.

“OV” was rescued by the Virginia Aquarium Stranding Center after being hooked at a Norfolk fishing pier and eventually transferred to the Outer Banks.  After removal of the hook, antibiotics, and some good nutrition, OV is ready to get back to the ocean.
