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

Ona is competing well and gaining weight quickly.

Ona loves to spend her time hauled out in the sun and relaxing in between meals.

Ona has moved into a larger pool where she seems to be enjoying Darby’s company.

Ona is now eating fish all on her own. Before she knows it she will be in a pool with new friends and lots of room to play.
