Restaurant Quality, Sustainable Seafood = Happy, Healthy Animals! | Staci  buttonLink

Restaurant Quality, Sustainable Seafood = Happy, Healthy Animals!

We want all of our animals here at the Aquarium to be happy and healthy!  A key component in achieving that goal is to make sure each animal is given a high-quality, well-balanced diet.  As you might have guessed, a huge part of a marine mammal volunteer’s day is spent preparing the food that the animals will be eating that day.  This is actually a little more work than most people think, so I thought it would be fun to share some details about what our animals eat and how we go about preparing it for them.

Welcome Odin, our newest California sea lion! | Staci  buttonLink

Welcome Odin, our newest California sea lion!

I’m pleased to report that we have another new addition to our pinniped family at the Aquarium! A rescued two-year-old male California sea lion joined current residents Miller, Parker, Shelby, Ellie, and newcomer Troy this past Thursday in the Seal and Sea Lion Habitat. I encourage everyone to come on out and see Odin living it up in his new home.  Isn’t it nice when a rescue story has a happy ending?
