On June 25, 2016, Mary the Southern Eagle Seal, a 7-year-old elephant, was found dead at the bottom of the ocean off the coast of Florida.
Her body was discovered in the sea off the shore of Port Everglades.
Mary was the third elephant seal captured in the last decade, and the third dolphin seal to die.
The seal’s death was first reported in March 2017 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), who called it “the most devastating loss of an animal this century.”
Mary was found near the mouth of the Florida Everglade National Wildlife Refuge.
She was believed to have been swimming in shallow water off the east coast of the state.
The marine mammal sanctuary where she was found, the International Center for Dolphin Research (ICD), said the seal was a good swimmer and had a healthy body condition.
But after being captured, Mary’s remains were found in a plastic bag.
The container contained a large number of animal bones and other animal parts.
On June 26, 2017, the seal’s body was recovered.
The body was examined by the forensic anthropologist at the ICD, who said the body was consistent with a male elephant seal and female dolphin seal.
According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), there is no scientific consensus on the age of Mary’s death.
However, IUCN members and activists have stated that it is possible she was approximately 30 years old.
While the International Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (IoA) lists Mary as a “strategically endangered” species, the IUC Nominations Committee, the only body of experts on endangered species in the world, considers her a “threatened species” and designated her a national marine mammal.
It has classified her as a threatened species under Article 10 of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).
The International Union of Animal Welfare, a group of leading international animal welfare groups, said that Mary’s killing “signifies the loss of a significant source of income for the seal industry in Florida.”
The International Fund For Animal Welfare has been campaigning for more than a decade to raise awareness about the Southern Elephants’ plight.
In 2016, the organization filed a petition to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) to remove Mary’s body from the Evergladesh and save her from being taken into captivity.
The IUCNA petition urged the FWC to remove her from the Florida Sea Grant Commission’s (FSGCC) list of threatened marine mammals.
The petition also demanded that the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) release Mary’s seal remains.
The state’s decision to release Mary from captivity, which is the only way to ensure her continued care and protection, is a decision that will affect many more seal species, including the Southern elephant seal.
Mary is the fourth Southern elephant seals to die this year.
In September 2017, an elephant seal was killed off the eastern coast of Australia.
The last Southern elephant killed was a male dolphin seal in October 2016, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).
In December, a female dolphin was found shot to death off the South Island of New Zealand.
The southern elephant seal has been listed as “critically endangered.”
In February 2018, a baby elephant seal died after suffering a traumatic and violent death.
The mother was a captive of an exotic pet dealer and was shot by her own mother in a dispute about who was keeping the animal.
The two mothers were arguing when she accidentally shot her and killed her calf, according a news report from the Australian media.
The woman’s owner was charged with second-degree murder, according the news report.
Since Mary’s recent death, the Southern Eagles have been threatened with extinction by habitat loss and pollution.
Last year, the southern elephant seals were listed as vulnerable by the IUU.
“It is absolutely vital that the world knows about the plight of the Southern elephants and the need to act quickly to save them,” said IUC President Pia Koster.
“The southern elephant is a species that is very well-known for its high-level of social complexity and for its strong protection and protection of its habitat.
These are the two most important things that it needs right now.”
