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

That was quick! Onyx has joined his friends in the Orca pre-release pool!

Onyx has developed some eye problems for which he needs treatment, so he has been moved back into the Out-of-Quarantine area into a private tub for the moment.

Onyx has joined several other pups in a large pre-release pool where he is successfully competing for fish! Well done, Onyx!

Onyx is making good progress in fish school! Keep this up, and you'll be in the pre-release pool in no time, Onyx!
