Erin Gibbons, assistant supervisor of pinnipeds at Mystic Aquarium, feeds Ziggy Star, a female adult northern fur seal, Thursday. The seal was transported last week via Federal Express to Mystic from The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, Calif., which had cared for her for several months. Ziggy Star was found last April collapsed on a beach on the Mendocino coast, severely emaciated and barely alive due to a serious neurologic disorder that impaired her ability to live in the wild. Mystic Aquarium says it was chosen as her permanent home because of its long history of caring for and breeding northern fur seals.
