Patient Updates

Rosaline was released after 63 days in our care.

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

Rosaline is a big girl now, quite literally! She's gained a lot of weight since we last took a picture, and she's looking amazing! Not long until we will have to say goodbye to our first female patient of the season...

Rosaline just looooves swimming in her new pool! She's been upgraded again to an even pre-release bigger pool, and she's still with Chunky Monkey.

Rosaline has most certainly mastered the idea of eating fish. She will reach her release weight in no time!

Rosaline has been "upgraded" to the big pool! Together with Chunky Monkey, she is one of the first seals this season who have made that transition. She now has a chance to learn how to swim, dive, socialize with other harbour seals and compete for food.
