  • Global News published this video item, entitled “Neighbourhood bands together to guide stranded Elephant seal back to sea in Chile” – below is their description.

    A massive Elephant seal was spotted roaming the residential neighbourhood in Puerto Cisne, Chile, generating confusion among residents as the animals rarely cross paths with humans. A group of neighbours carried out an operation to help the seal return to sea, which they finally achieved with the help of Carabineros and Navy personnel. Once the animal flopped back into its natural habitat, cheers erupted from the rescuers. Sightings of elephant seals as well as penguins are natural events in the region during this time of year, said Nicolas Leiva, Head of the Environmental Management Department of the National Fisheries and Aquaculture Service, although they have noticed an increase in these sightings in the area.
