Two rescued harbour seals are now living at Assiniboine Park Zoo after arriving from the west coast.
Cetus and Camrose, both male, come from Vancouver Aquarium Marine Mammal Rescue Centre and recently completed the standard 30-day quarantine period to join the zoo’s other seals.
The two were rescued when they were less than one week old and were deemed non-releasable due to health issues that severely restrict their ability to hunt and care for themselves and survive in the wild.
With their arrival, Assiniboine Park Zoo is now home to seven harbour seals.
Cetus and Camrose can be found in the Gateway to the Arctic seal habitat with the Journey to Churchill exhibit.
