Patient Updates

Okapi was released after 62 days in our care.

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

Okapi has made it all the way to the biggest pre-release pool. Not long now before we'll say goodbye to her...

Okapi has moved to one of the bigger pre-release pools. She looks really good!

Awww they grow up so fast. Okapi is already in a big pool, learning how to compete with other seals.

Okapi is quite feisty and a challenge to feed! But she's already gained some weight and is progressing normally.
