Look at Maple Walnut in the pre-release pool! He's now in the largest pool, and since he's gained plenty of weight since he was admitted, he's on track to be released soon!

Looks like Maple Walnut has a friend! He's now living in one of the largest pre-release pools with lots of other harbour seals.

Maple Walnut has been moved to a larger pre-release pool with lots of new friends!
