Patient Updates

Pike Tyson was released after 44 days in our care.

"Pike liked the beach we chose for his release so much, he didn't really want to leave. He hung around in the shallow water for a long time before eventually wandering off to explore the deeper water, and the rocks and islets along the coast."

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

Pike's perked up quite a bit since his arrival. He's rather curious now and gaining weight.

Pike is progressing normally. He's slowly gaining weight.
