Release of Clover and Dock
Clover and Dock were released on the 16th of July 2004 with the help of Orca Seafaris, just off Falmouth.

Dock was first to go and when he finally did go, he swam round the boat for some time before he disappeared. Clover was not happy about going, the swell was quite high, so Clover waited until the cage was nearly touching the water before she would go in.
