Patient Updates

Arthur was released after 64 days in our care.

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

Arthur has gotten much bigger and is almost ready for release!

Arthur did so well in his little pool that he has now been moved to a pre release pool!

Such a smart boy! Arthur is already eating fish all on his own, the first seal to do so in his weaning group!

Arthur has just started the weaning process and is doing well, but loves to wiggle and roll!
