On Saturday afternoon, the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation will be releasing a rehabilitated seal back into the wild.

The seal, given the name Penny, will be brought to Iron Pier Beach at the end of Iron Pier Avenue in Jamesport.

Penny is a 6-month-old female harbor seal. She was rescued at Atlantic Beach in Hempstead back in June, when she was just five days old.

Penny will be released at 1 p.m. November 23 and the public is invited to see her off.
