On Wednesday, the Vancouver Aquarium released seven rehabilitated seal pups into Vancouver’s Howe Sound, with some pups sporting a new look.
Five seal pups were outfitted with satellite transmitters glued to the fur on the top of their heads. The mohawk-like transmitters promise to provide the Vancouver Aquarium with information on the pups’ travel patterns, as well as helping staff determine ideal conditions for future wildlife releases.
According to the Canadian Press, the satellite transmitters will last anywhere from two weeks to a year.
In this week’s video watch as wide-eyed seal pups flop to the water’s edge — their new accessories making them look even cuter.
