Patient Updates

Bonobo was released after 50 days in our care.

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

A month after the last update, we captured Bonobo in our largest pre-release pool where she seems to be doing really well.

Bonobo has been in isolation for a bit (suspected infectious disease), but she's already eating fish and otherwise progressing normally.
