Patient Updates

Impala was released after 44 days in our care.

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

Almost a month later and Impala is looking amazing! She's gained a lot of weight and seems to be enjoying her big pre-release pool.

Impala has already gained a little weight. We have begun weening him onto fish, and he is being hand-fed herring for now. With a little bit of luck and talent, he'll make it through fish school in no time!
