Patient Updates

Seal-ine Dion was released after 61 days in our care.

"For her release, Seal-ine was flown to Haida Gwaii, where she was first rescued. She was released by DFO officers."

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

They grow up so fast... Seal-ine has gained a lot of weight already. She's such a beautiful young lady now!

Seal-ine has been upgraded again! She's already moved in to one of the largest pre-release pools, where is joining Dwayne, our first pup of the season.

Seal-ine's been upgraded to a bigger pool ─ and she's got a friend now!

Seal-ine has left quarantine and is wrapping up fish school right now. Well, she's been described as "feisty" and rather difficult to feed. But she'll get there... soon.

We've begun to feed her fish... she's not a fan - yet.

Seal-ine kept a close eye on us when we checked in on her for pictures. Very alert, and very vocal... and hungry!

Guestbook for Seal-ine Dion

  1. I was visiting Queen Charlotte Lodge when we came across the harbour seal that was all alone in the harbour. I am so glad that QCL reached out to you folks and you were able to take him in. It is great to hear that Seal-Line Dion is doing really well.
    Hat’s off to everyone at QCL and the Vancouver aquarium for making this happen. It is so nice to hear these wonderful stories in such a challenging world.
