Patient Updates

Liquorice was released after 82 days in our care.

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

She may be blind on one eye ─ but that doesn't stop Liquorice! She's been moved to a pre-release pool (a luxury one with 2 separate pools and viewing windows) and is currently learning how to compete with other seals.

Liquorice’s right eye is non-viable, but she is doing really well in fish school. She's very eager, and she's is quite feisty!
