Guestbook for Alfie

  1. Welcome to your new temporary home Alfie!

    We know you are in great hands with the team at the MMR – your brother Alfie (from 2020), must have loved his time there at the MMR, evidenced by his longer than normal recovery time.

    Learn lots, and get ready for your release back into the great big sea!

  2. Welcome to the family Alfie 2. I have a whole family of A names so for me you will be A6. You are just as cute as your “sibling.” Heal well little one! Happy birthday Jaqueline Anne.

  3. Awesome what you have both done and are doing for the cute baby seals. Wishing Alfie 2 (A6) a speedy recovery.

  4. Great that MMR is taking care of you Alfie. Can’t wait until you are healthy enough to get out and about so we can see you when we are out sailing next year!
