Patient Updates

Gazelle was released after 161 days in our care.

Gazelle was released with a satellite tag. You can open the tracking map to track their movements.

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

Gazelle is quite shy, so it took us a while to get a picture of her in her new 'training pool'. But here she is, looking amazing!

BREAKING NEWS! Gazelle is in fish school, on her third day of learning to eat fish. She is a very smart seal, and is progressing ahead of her planned program. Well done!
