Patient Updates

Acadia was released after 85 days in our care.

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

Acadia is just a couple weeks aways from release! He is in our biggest pre release pool with lots of other seals to practice competing with.

Acadia has made it into the largest pre-release pool, where he's continuing to gain weight while working on his competition skills.

Staff started weaning Acadia on July 14. It took him a while to get through fish school, but he's now already in a pre-release pool with lots of new friends, working on his food competition skills.
