Patient Updates

Snapper was released after 69 days in our care.

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

Snapper is in a pre release pool and doing great!

Snapper is a slow learner in fish school and prefers the help of his caretakers when it comes to eating, but he is getting the hang of it!

Snapper is now weaning! Fish school is just days away.

Although his name suggests differently, Snapper is a very sweet seal who enjoys sunbathing and swims.
