This is a pool designed to accommodate cetaceans, e. g. harbour porpoise. It is also used as the largest pre-release pool. Those who have made it this far will soon be released. They have already demonstrated that they can eat fish on their own and compete with others. Now they only need to gain a little bit of weight.

Story

Malachite was observed by one of our field observers, and when the tide started coming in, we decided to transport him to the rescue centre.

Patient Updates

Something must have clicked... Malachite is now eating fish on his own!

Malachite has left quarantine and was paired with Larimar when we checked in on him.

Symbolic Adoption

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