Save the Seals










 Jacket: Penfield c/o Sweater: Vineyard Vines (similar) Pants: J.Crew Boots: Hunter c/o  Hat:Vineyard Vines

A couple of weeks ago I was proud to be present at the release of three rehabilitated Mystic Aquarium seals (two grey seals and one harp seal) at Blue Shutters Beach in Charlestown, RI. The harp seal named Curie had spent a year at the aquarium before being deemed healthy enough to return to sea. (Curie is the seal shown swimming in the tank. This picture was taken in late March). Curie was rescued by the aquarium a little over a year ago due to a respiratory infection. It was beautiful to witness not only the return of the seals to their natural environment, but also the joy of the Stranding staff and volunteers who made their release possible. 

Mystic Aquarium recently  offered me the position of Ambassador to the Stranding Program. I'm not only honored but excited for this opportunity to work with the aquarium and to raise awareness to the program. As part of my involvement with this endeavor I will also be donating all revenue from Classy Girls Wear Pearls to Mystic Aquarium. Mystic and the Sea Research Foundation play a huge role in the community and all donations go to educational programs for children, sea exploration, nature conservation, rescuing wildlife, and training specialists. To donate or learn more about the Stranding Program please visit the website here
