Patient Updates

Mac was released after 90 days in our care.

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

A true favourite on site and the definition of sea puppy. Mac is getting big and will soon be ready for release. He is very talkative and loves to yell at his caretakers from across the facility. His adorable face always displays a look of confusion aside from during meal time..he knows exactly what he wants (and he’ll tell you about it). If Mac isn’t yelling about his need for fish he is probably following his best friend Lisa around the pool, he loves to hang out with her although sometimes he is rather loud for her liking.

If Mac weren’t a seal he would definitely be a puppy. Mac is very curious, vocal and always wants to be included. He is gaining weight and now in a pre release pool with 5 other seals but it will still be a while until he is ready for release.

Mac is doing great and quickly learning how to eat fish, although he still needs a bit of help from his care takers. He is always resting in a “banana” pose and loves to vocalize and chat to whoever will listen!
