Bonnemine is jung female harbor seal of 2007. She was found at the bottom of Mont-Saint-Michel (north of France) on the 14th july 2007. She was alone, without her mother, even though it was evident she was still breastfed. Probably her mother was frightened by something and she couldn't follow her.
She was bred by the CHENE during 3 months and then able to return to wildlife. she was released the 5th november 2007 at the baie of Mont-Saint-Michel. She went away with an other jung rehabilitated harbor seal (Idefix) and was tagged with an Argos tag painted in red.

Bonnemine est une femelle phoque veau-marin de l'année 2007. Elle a été récupérée au pied du Mont-Saint-Michel (nord de la France) le 14 juillet 2007. Elle se trouvait isolée, sans sa mère, alors qu'elle était encore largement en âge d'être allaitée. Probablement qu'un évènement avait fait fuir la mère et qu'elle n'avait pas pu la suivre.
Elle a été élevée pendant 3 mois au CHENE, puis remise en liberté le 5 novembre 2007, toujours en baie du Mont-Saint-Michel. Elle est partie en compagnie d'Idéfix, un compagnon aussi soigné au CHENE, équipée d'une balise Argos peinte en rouge.
