Patient Updates

Beryl was released after 97 days in our care.

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

Look at big Beryl! She's gained a lot of weight but isn't quite there yet for release. She is currently placed in one of the larger pre-release pools where she's acting like a little princess!

Beryl is no longer alone in her pool! Garnet and Tanzanite have joined her. Now she can learn how to compete for food...

Beryl has been moved to the big pre-release pool! Although she's tiny, she's fierce and well ahead of many of the other patients! Well done, Beryl!

Yay! Beryl has graduated from fish school with flying colours. Once dropped into her tub, she swallows one herring after another. Somebody's aiming for success...
