‘Lou-Seal’ Chosen As Name Of Rescued Seal

April 9, 2019

After arriving on the island last month, the female seal — which is currently a resident of the Bermuda Aquarium Museum and Zoo [BAMZ] where she is being cared for by their wildlife rehab team — finally has a name, with the island’s latest resident being called ‘Lou-Seal.’

The seal was located in the vicinity of Tobacco Bay Beach in St George’s three weeks ago, and since that time has been under the care of the dedicated staff of BAMZ, who recently explained that she has an infection which is likely “localised to her nasal cavity and upper respiratory tract,” however they remain “cautiously optimistic.”

In an online post, BAMZ revealed her new name, saying,“Thanks to all who participated in the naming contest for the female grey seal. We are happy to introduce Lou-Seal!”

‘Lou-Seal’ was selected out of dozens of names suggested in the online naming contest with some of the other entrants including Tobacco, Frangipani, Swizzle, Speckles, Georgia Somers, Stormy, Seamore and Sealine Dion.
