Hurley was released after 99 days in our care.

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

Hurley has made an incredible amount of progress since first arriving at the rescue centre. He was admitted with severe wounds to his face and has since healed well and is now in a pre release pool! Hurley is a great competitor and always the first to find all his fish.
