Patient Updates

Bill Fry the Science Guy was released after 220 days in our care.

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

Bill has arrived in one of our largest pre-release pools. He has clearly gained quite a bit of weight since we last checked in on him and is on track for a successful release in a few weeks.

Bill has a new pool mate, but he's still training for the bigger pool...

Next step for Bill is to figure out how to compete for food with other pups. So we gave him a friend... meet Steven Sealberg!

Bill may be a tiny pup... but he's in a big pool now!

Bill was emaciated when he arrived at the rescue centre, but he is slowly gaining weight and already looking a bit better!
