Patient Updates

Maggie Mae was released after 78 days in our care.

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

Maggie is in the biggest pre release pool and is a great competitor at meal time!

She may be the smallest seal in her pool but she is the feistiest competitor!

Maggie has been moved to a pool with two pool mates where she is doing a good job learning to compete for fish. The three seals in that pool love to take turns hauling out and lying in the sun.

Maggie Mae has now started weaning onto fish. She’s still not quite sure what a fish is but will be eating on her own in no time!
