Vancouver Island Marmot release

On June 26 2018 the Marmot Recovery Foundation released the first 3 marmots of the season.
Born in captivity at the Calgary Zoo, this the first time these marmots have experienced the wild, and the speed with which they made that transition was impressive. Within moments the marmots were exploring the world around their new home, and sampling the local vegetation.
There are still more marmots from the Toronto Zoo to be released, but it is great to see the first ones out adapting so quickly after their release!
