Patient Updates

Tin Roof Sundae was released after 67 days in our care.

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

Looks like Tin Roof is enjoying the newfound freedom of her new pre-release pool! She has to share it with her friends ─ but she's picking up a useful skill there, to compete for food with other harbour seals.

Tin Roof Sundae is one of the newest weaner bunch and is not too happy when the fish is thrown in. She swats at it. She has the swallowing thing figured out, but is still somewhat difficult to feed.
