There is a lot going on in the ocean when you look beyond the waves and the whales (and other animals) in the ocean, microscopic life flourishes underneath the surface. Over the next few weeks, the Aquarium of the Pacific will be talking with researchers working on the NOAA ship, Ronald H. Brown. These scientists are participating in ongoing research to measure and monitor changes in the world oceans over time. Traveling from Durban, South Africa to Goa, India, they will be collecting samples of the water so that they can describe the ocean chemistry and biology that they are observing.
In the last couple of weeks, we’ve recorded 15 sightings of gray whales along with lots of fin whales, bottlenose dolphins, common dolphins, Pacific white-sided, and even a sperm whale!

The sea otters at the Aquarium of the Pacific, as part of their enrichment, are given toys to play with during the day. They are also taught to retrieve these toys so that they can be put away at the end of the day. Well, one day one otter was having too much fun with her toy.
