Patient Updates

Friday Island was released after 96 days in our care.

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

Friday is steadily gaining weight, and a favourite amongst staff and volunteers.

Friday is doing well and still progressing through fish school. He loves his swims and working towards eating independently.

Friday is now in Coho! He’s gotten much faster at eating on his own and is enjoying extra space to swim around and haul out.

Friday is now in Ellie! He’s gotten nice and big and Ellie is a great spot for him to have much more haul out and swimming space.
