Patient Updates

Okeana was released after 33 days in our care.

"Okeana was a bit hesitant at first, but ultimately followed Sealy Dan, who had come back to shore to wait for him─ or so it seemed."

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

He's quite feisty but seems to have gotten used to his new temporary home.
