It’s been a very eventful month, we’ve seen quite a few fin whales, lots of dolphins, and we’re having another great early season of blue whales!

What do you do when you are a sea otter and you have a big piece of clam in your paws but need to adjust the piece in your mouth that you just bit off? Why you use your otter pocket of course!

After a meal, all good little sea otters brush their teeth. Ollie the sea otter recently learned how to have her teeth brushed. She also helped me capture a unique point of view while she ate.

I hope everyone has been staying dry, unless you’ve been on a whale watch where you’ll have to get a little rainy to see all the amazing things there has been in the last few weeks. Plenty of lunge feeding or breaching humpbacks, breaching and feeding grays, as well as plenty of dolphins!

Nearly everyone has a “Happy Place” that they can dream about. My happy place dreams tend to have a lot of otters and other critters in it. In this week’s Hugh’s Aquarium Views video, I try to visually interpret and share some those happy place dreams.

How do I describe my Aquarium of the Pacific volunteer shift? Well, I like to refer to it as my Sea Otter Saturdays.

Gray whales galore! Gray whales are seen almost every day right now, and plenty have been inside the breakwall.

Retrievals act as both a physical exercise behavior that helps keep our critters fit, and is also a fun activity that is mentally stimulating for the animal. It’s also fun for the staff!

It’s been a lovely couple of weeks, minus some of the storms and getting rained out, but when we were out on the water there was plenty of sea life to explore and observe. Humpback whales, fin whales, gray whales including some cow/calf pairs, and lots of dolphins!
