Jetpets were proud to assist with the animal transport of an 18-month-old long-nosed fur seal pup named Birubi for SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast Aquarium. Working in conjunction with the SEA LIFE team Birubi was transported in a purposely designed transport crate from Sydney to Maroochydore.
In settling into the new environment her trainer Jess Hart said, “Relocating any animal comes with months of planning and preparation and we’re so excited to share that Birubi has arrived safely and is settling in well.
Her confidence is already shining through, and her new trainers will slowly begin socialising her with the other seals within the colony”.
“Birubi is now the smallest resident at the aquarium’s Seal Island, weighing just 12kg. Birubi will act as an important ambassador for her species educating thousands of guests who visit SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast each year about the important role seals play in our marine ecosystems”.
If you are up on the Sunshine Coast on holidays or passing through, drop in and say hello to Birubi and also learn more about the amazing work SEA LIFE do for wildlife conservation.
