Abandoned seals returned to wild

NORDDEICH, GERMANY (GETTY IMAGES) -- AUGUST 14: The Seehundstation Norddeich is a facility for raising young seals who were separated from their mothers due to storms, disease or human disturbance and who would otherwise have little chance of survival. Volunteers collect about 90 young seals a year from the North Sea German coast and care for the pups until they weigh about 25 kg before releasing them back into the wild. Sponsors pay for the costs of caring for the seals and get to name them. (Photos by David Hecker/Getty Images)
