Patient Updates

Chunk was released after 60 days in our care.

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

Chunk has been fast-tracked into the largest pre-release pool on site. That means he's already quite heavy and knows how to compete for fish. This will be his last station before being returned into the wild.
