Patient Progress

Pre-Release Pool Hannah has demonstrated that she is confident eating fish on her own and that she can compete for food with other harbour seals. She has been moved to a larger pool where she can further test and improve her skills. She will move between pools as she progresses further and develops her skills until she reaches her release weight. It can take just a few weeks or several months before a patient is ready for release, depending on health status and treatment plan, weight gain and transport availability.

Patient Updates

Hannah has already made it into a pre-release pool! She'll continue to gain weight there and work on her food competition skills.

Hannah is as vocal as she is curious...
