Patients that have already demonstrated that they can eat fish on their own are placed in a pool where they can learn how to compete with other animals. This is one of the smaller pools with a haul-out platform in the centre. It can only fit a few animals and is a good starting point for patients that have never been housed with another seal.

Patient Progress

"Training" Pool Peachie has demonstrated that she is confident eating fish on her own. She has been moved to a small pool that fits up to 3 animals where she can learn how to compete for fish with other harbour seals. She will move to a larger pool once she is confident enough.

Peachie is feisty but doing well!

Guestbook for Peachie

  1. I didn’t get to see her before she was picked up. Sad that this is the second seal pup that was abandoned at our Marina, since I lived here. Hope she fares well like the Fluorite did and can be released back into the wild.

  2. Peachie, you are so cute! I hope you continue to grow and learn how to be a strong Harbor Seal who thrives in the wild!

    I’d love to hear about updates on Peachie!
