Possible Harbor Porpoise update

Hi Joey!
My name is Molly Kelleher and I’m currently a sophomore marine biology
student at the University of New England up in Biddeford, Maine. I’m
from Beverly, MA, and love your blog! Here at UNE we have a Marine
Animal Rehabilitation Center (MARC) and we are currently full of harp
and harbor seals, turtles and a harbor porpoise! This juvenile
porpoise is only 55 pounds and 47 inches long! She was stranded up in
Saugus, MA. Maybe this was the little porpoise that was spotted out
off the dock In Gloucester around St. Patty’s??
Here is the link for more information about our current patients at
MARC, check out the porpoise and our baby harp seal!!

I’ve also attached a picture of the porpoise swimming around outside
in her tank!
