Every seal that arrives at the rescue centre is placed in a tub under quarantine. This is the first temporary home for each new arrival, where they remain for at least 14 days before they are moved to a larger tub.
You can help us care for Bob and the more than 100 marine mammals we rescue, rehabilitate and release every year by symbolically adopting him today with a small donation to the rescue centre.
Milk Matrix Bob is being fed a milk formula that mimics the milk he would receive from his mother. This formula is high in fat and promotes weight gain. He will eventually be weaned onto fish.
There are no updates for Bob yet, but we are working on it. Please check back soon...
