 The Marine Mammal Center
Marine mammals are migratory animals and are capable of swimming large distances, so it does not affect them to be released at a different point within their range.
Marine mammals are well adapted to their ocean environment; they can easily find food, escape predators, and sense what is going on in their underwater habitat.
Humans don't view other marine mammals such as elephant seals and harbor seals as "intelligent," but this could be because their body shape and general personality aren't as well suited for training.
