Where are they now: An update on Sgt. Nevis
and Wishbone aka Stimpy
from the Pinniped team of Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

Read more about Sgt. Nevis' story here
You may recall Sgt. Nevis' tragic beginning as a gunshot victim that was rescued and treated by The Marine Mammal Center in November 2009. After months of care and rehabilitation in our hospital, including work from a human plastic surgeon to correct damage to his nasal passage, Sgt. Nevis was doing much better. However, it was sadly determined that he would not be able to live a life in the ocean. The decision to transfer Sgt. Nevis was not made lightly, but veterinarians from both organizations agreed that he would thrive at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. Several years later, Sgt. Nevis and Wishbone aka Stimpy, another of the Center's unreleasable patients at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, are doing well.
Join us for an evening with the pinniped team of Six Flags Discovery Kingdom for an update on Sgt. Nevis, Stimpy, and other past patients of The Marine Mammal Center. Although our hope for all of our patients is to return to a life wild and free in the ocean, this cannot be realized for some due to reasons such as blindness, brain damage, and other debilitating conditions. These special animals serve as educational ambassadors to share their stories with the public, promoting awareness for their species and the ocean environment.
