Patient Updates

Carlita was released after 85 days in our care.

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

Carlita is back in a pool with her BFF Dawn. They are both in a pre release pool and eating lots of fish each day!

Carlita has moved to a new pool with Ryla. She is a gentle seal that will provide great (and friendly) competition to Ryla who had eye surgery only a month ago!

Carlita is very friendly to her (partially) eyeless pool mate and gaining weight well.

Carlita is currently in a pool together with Dawn ─ and they're the cutest thing ever.

Carlita has been fully weaned and is eating only herring now! She has almost graduated from fish school!

Carlita is very vocal... and despite being tiny, she's already got teeth, and she's in the processed of being weaned onto fish. This seems to be going well...

Guestbook for Carlita

  1. Wish I could do any donate but I live in Brasil more than half of population without human conditions, without legal rights and Amazônia still burning…

  2. Yay!! Keep improving your skills Carlita! I hope you get released soon! ❤️
