Gaia joined the SLEWTHS family on March 8th, 2016.  She came to our facility from the Pacific Marine Mammal facility in Long Beach, CA.  She was born in 2014 and was a repeat strander, which caused her to be deemed non-releasable. Gaia was found with a fishing lure in her back and had sustained several injuries when she was found. She is an eager animal that is always yearning to learn more. Since her start here at SLEWTHS, she has learned a variety of behaviors including multiple forms of targeting, holding on the scale, voluntarily caging, and full medical check behaviors. She loves playing with toys, eating ice and playing with her friend Freya.
