Guestbook for Keefer Rock

  1. So happy that Keefer Rock is doing well! Thank you for taking him in and caring for him!

  2. I am following Keefers journey with great interest. Can’t belive what a ” world” traveler he is!😯 My friend was wondering if they charge him roaming fees!!😂
    Anyway we learned of Keefer through this site as we have our beloved seal Wizard taken care by you and released the same day as Keefer.
    Question are all the seals tagged?
    Again thank you all so much for your dedication and efforts to saving those sweet Creatures!!! Bless you all!

  3. They are all tagged with an orange identifying tag but only select patients are released with a satellite tracker. This season, Keefer is only 1 of 2 so far. The other was Dorothy.
