This is a large pre-release pool that houses many patients. Animals that have already demonstrated that they can eat fish on their own are placed in a larger pool like this where they can learn how to compete for fish and socialize with other harbour seals.
So far so good! Kevinite was very dehydrated and malnourished at arrival last night. We want to see her swim as her posture looks odd, but she is hanging in there.
