Patient Progress

Fish School Echo is now in fish school. She is currently learning how to eat fish on her own. All pups are initially hand-fed, but later fish is just thrown into their tub to give them an opportunity to dive for, grab and swallow the fish whole, head first. It's something all pups need to learn, and it requires quite some skill. Eventually, Echo will eat entirely on her own at which point she will graduate from fish school.

Guestbook for Echo

  1. Hi Echo- Looks like you are the tiniest little seal pup. You have been rescued and taken to MMRC where they will give you lots of love and take the best care of you. You are being fed a yummy milk formula so I hope you are drinking it all up so you can grow big and strong. Keep fighting and being brave. Sending you healthy thoughts and love.

  2. We found sweet little Echo on our dock a week ago. The kids are really excited to see how Echo is growing and we are all so happy Echo is doing well :)!!
