Banff's Story

Let Us Clear Your Throat

We found Banff during a research study with our good friends and partners at Inwater Research Group. We realized during this study that Banff had a hook in their throat that would require surgery. Luckily, the hook was removed without incident, and we were proud to release Banff on August 8, 2022.
