Habitat: Orca Pool (5)

This is a pool designed to accommodate cetaceans, e. g. harbour porpoise. It is also used as the largest pre-release pool, holding 160,000 litres of water. When used for harbour seal pups, those who have made it this far will soon be released. They have already demonstrated that they can eat fish on their own and compete with others. They are probably already tagged as well. Now they only need to gain a little bit of weight.
