Patient Progress

Pre-Release Pool Emily Carp has demonstrated that she is confident eating fish on her and that she can compete for food with other harbour seals. She has been moved to a larger pool where she can further test and improve her skills. She will move between pools as she progresses further and develops her skills until she reaches her release weight. It can take just a few weeks or several months before a patient is ready for release, depending on health status and treatment plan, weight gain and transport availability.

Patient Updates

Emily is still the smallest pup on site, but she eats fish all on her own now!

Emily is described as a "tiny little sweetheart". She weighed very little and was very small when she was rescued. She's still quite small but has gained some weight.
