Wolfie Goes Home and the Marine Mammal Center
Wolfie is a seal at the Marine Mammal Center who has an infection in his left wrist joint. To help him they had to remove all the dead bone to help him. They solved the problem because a volunteer donated an Agee Wristjack. Wolfie is now healed and uses his bionic flipper to help him slide and swim.
The Marine Mammal Center lets any teenager from 14 to 18 volunteer.
This is a picture of Wolfie and a wild sea lion. Wolfie is the one with the tracking device on the back oh his head.
