Patient Updates

Echo was released after 111 days in our care.

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

Echo has grown so much since being admitted to the rescue centre and yet she is still the tiniest seal in her pool! Her size makes it easy for staff to pick her out of a group of seals. She is a feisty competitor and is working hard to gain weight in preparation for release!

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 :)!!

  3. You may still be the littlest seal pup in your pool but I am proud of your hard work. You are doing great and made your way to fish school. Be brave and strong in the pool with your seal friends so you can catch and eat lots and lots of fishes. That way you will grow bigger and bigger and stronger and stronger and be able to head back to the ocean for fun adventures that are waiting for you.

  4. Hi cutie Echo- You’ve been in the care of MMRC for many months now and are in fish school which means you’ve been working really hard and paid close attention to your teachers. I bet you have grown even bigger and stronger in the last few weeks since I last checked on you. Keep eating your fishes and growing stronger and stronger precious Echo. Be well and take care!!
