Patient Record

Species: Harbour Seal

Patient ID: PV1914

Admitted on: 2019/06/27

Collection Site: Hornby Island

Reason for Admission: Maternal separation

Weight at Admission: 10.75 kg

Patient Status: in care

Time in Care: 23 days

Current Habitat: Coho Pool

Patients that have already demonstrated that they can eat fish on their own are placed in a pool where they can learn how to compete with other animals. This is one of the smaller pools with a haul-out platform in the centre. It can only fit a few animals and is a good starting point for patients that have never been housed with another seal.

Patient Updates

Manatee has already been "upgraded" to a larger pool & seems to be enjoying himself... a lot!

Manatee is very alert, curious - and doing well during his tube feeds.

Guestbook for Manatee

  1. This was our first time coming across a helpless seal pup. Our family was so impressed at the prompt networking response that led to Manatee’s safe rescue. We are hoping for an update on his condition soon! Sending healing hugs to Manatee!!

  2. So glad to see Manatee is recovering. We’d like to thank all the volunteers that participated in his recover. We’ll check back regularly for updates
