Peewee the northern fur seal is lucky he found his way to the Island Wildlife Natural Care Centre on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia. When the pup first was brought in, he was starving and sick. When they shot this video of him being released, he was a healthy pup who couldn't be happier to see the ocean. He almost couldn't believe he was being released.

You can learn more about the Wildlife Natural Care Centre at the group's website,, and on Facebook.
