Season 1, Episode 4 of 5
More from this Series

Andre, "the seal who came home," is the true story of a two-day old wild harbor seal who, in 1961, was rescued from certain death by Harry Goodridge, an arborist from Rockport, Maine. Over the next 25 years, Andre and Harry established a friendship that brought Andre into the world of humans without Andre ever having to give up his wildness. The human world gave Andre shelter during the harsh New England winter. But staying wild at heart meant Andre had the know-how to be able to make the 200 mile swim home to Rockport. This interspecies friendship weathered every kind of challenge including at the end, Andre's blindness.
