Ruff, a beloved 17-year-old seal at the East London Aquarium, was recently spotted a long way from home in the Kwelera River. Her caretakers were so relieved! After being washed out of her East London Aquarium pool by storm surges, staff was extremely worried they would never find Ruff again.
According to the staff, all they had to do was call her by name and she came out of the river water and followed them eagerly. She was rescued from the beach as a stranded pup and spent most of her life at the East London Aquarium. Ruff is now back in familiar waters with other seal friends.
