Aquarium seal pup’s name to be revealed Saturday

NIAGARA FALLS – The Aquarium of Niagara will announce the name that voters have chosen for its new Harbor seal pup during a “Reveal the Seal” naming ceremony at 1 p.m. Saturday in the outdoor Pacific Preserve exhibit.

Voters chose among four names – Bart, Jax, Cruz and Moe – via Facebook or in person at the aquarium. Visitors will be entered in a drawing to become the seal’s Aquaparent for the year. There also will be Harbor seal games and a coloring contest.

Aquarium visitors got their first look at the Harbor seal pup earlier this month. Born blind and abandoned by its mother, it was taken in from the coast of northern California by the Marine Mammal Center of Sausalito.
