Hardy is living up to his name! He is doing great and no longer requires formula from a bottle—he’s graduated to a diet of solid food including clams, squid and pollock fillets and now weighs 20.7 pounds (9.42 kgs).
Hardy is now in his eleventh week at the Vancouver Aquarium and continues to hit milestones! He is growing quickly and becoming quite independent.
At 10 weeks old, Hardy, the rescued sea otter pup at Vancouver Aquarium, weighs 18.7 pounds (8.48 kg). He’s experienced many milestones over the past week. His surf clam now includes more of the entire clam, which he is eating like a champ.
It is now the fourth week of the Seattle Aquarium staff providing animal care assistance to Hardy, a rescued sea otter at the Vancouver Aquarium. He is growing stronger and bigger and becoming more independent every day.
Your support connects people to the ocean in a way not otherwise possible and inspires bold action to care for animals and protect our shared marine environment.
