Patient Updates

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.
