Patient Updates

Emerald was released after 89 days in our care.

You can see the list of all animals released at this release in the release record.

Emerald has been very successful in fish school and has recently been moved to a pre-release pool where he will learn how to compete for food with other harbour seals.

What a transformation! Emerald looks all adult now - and has gained a lot of weight! Well done, Emerald!

We barely recognized Emerald this morning! He's beginning to lose his lanugo.

Emerald is adapting well. He has gained some weight and continues to improve.
