Guestbook for Indium

  1. I hope Indium is doing ok. I was visiting Vancouver when we saw this baby seal hardly moving on the beach. We waited until you came for the rescue. It was the most unforgettable moment of my trip. Thank you for your work and taking care of those seals. I hope she is getting strength and will be out of quarantine soon.

  2. Indium – We are so happy you kept Dolomite company and we hope you are enjoying swimming in the ocean with your friends. Say hi to Dolomite if you see him! Love, Laura, Clare, Heidi, Mirabel and Adira
