Rare albino seal spotted in Turkish resort town Bodrum

A rare albino seal has been spotted by the Turkish Search and Rescue Association (AKUT) in the western Turkish resort town of Bodrum.

The 2.5-meter-long albino seal has been found swimming on a fish farm near the Torba bay.

After people working at the fish farm failed to rescue the seal, they notified the Environment and Forestry Ministry’s Directorate of Natural Life Protection and AKUT officials.

The AKUT team of eight rescued the rare albino seal and took it to its natural habitat after they made sure it was uninjured, reported state-run Anadolu Agency on April 12.
