    Rescued seals - Staff photo by Brianna Soukup | of | Share this photo

    Seal #108, a young female pup about three months old, at the Marine Mammals of Maine rehabilitation center on Tuesday, August 14, 2018. The organization has responded to over 40 seals in the past three days, 37 of them dead, and 11 of them alive and they are trying to figure out the cause of the uptick in deaths. The organization's rehab center is currently full with four seals, including #108 who they rescued at the end of June, and the rest of the facilities in the Northeast are at capacity as well. "We can't rescue an animal without a rehab spot open," executive director Lynda Doughty said. "There have been animals out there that have needed to come in, but we have to prioritize."
