Patient Updates

Chunky Monkey was released after 51 days in our care.

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

For the second time, Chunky Monkey has been moved, now to an even larger pre-release pool! He's still with Rosaline, and the two are getting along well.

Chunky Monkey has joined Rosaline in the big pool! They are the first patients this year to make this transition. In the larger pool, they will learn how to swim and dive, socialize with other harbour seals and compete for food.

Symbolic Adoption

We rescue, rehabilitate and release 100-150 animals like Chunky Monkey every year. You can support our important mission by symbolically adopting Chunky Monkey today with a small donation to the rescue centre.
