Patient Updates

Wilder was released after 63 days in our care.

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

Wilder has been moved to a bigger pre release pool with so much room to swim and chase his friends.

Wilder loves to swim and dive, and most of all…eat! She is in a pre release pool and almost ready for the wild.

Her right eye is healing well. She is still being monitored but not currently on any medications.
