When I watched Little Red the octopus get in her puzzle box a couple of videos ago I couldn’t help but think of how it reminded me of an astronaut getting into a space capsule while orbiting the earth.

Blue whales have been spotted off of Redondo Canyon and Pt. Fermin for the past week! Joining them have been a lot of fin whales and a couple humpbacks as well as our usual suspects of dolphins. When our interns start they’ll be starting out strong with blue whale ID.

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!
