KINGSTON,Washington (KING) -- Peri Anderson didn't expect to have a baby seal climb aboard her paddle board, but she did exactly the right thing when it did.

"I had to climb onto another board," the 10-year-old Anderson said as she was being honored by a wildlife group for making the right move this week during her class at Kingston Adventures in Kingston, Washington.

Rehabilitators at the PAWS Wildlife Center in Lynnwood said that because Anderson did not try to grab or touch the two-week-old seal, it has a good chance of making it back into the wild.
