Dance of the Reddish Egret | Hugh  buttonLink

Dance of the Reddish Egret

The Reddish Egrets of the Bolsa Chica Wetlands

When I’m not hanging around Parker the sea lion, Ollie the sea otter, and Noodles the penguin at the Aquarium of the Pacific, I like to spent my free time taking in the local wildlife found around Southern California. One of my favorite activities is to head down to the Bolsa Chica Wetlands to take in the “Dance of the Reddish Egret”.

The Aquarium’s Critters Seen from a Different Angle | Hugh  buttonLink

The Aquarium’s Critters Seen from a Different Angle

When you take a look at the Aquarium’s critters from a slightly different view point you may see things you didn’t notice before. Seen from ground level a seal happily “skips” along with her trainer. Seen from his point-of-view, a sea lion makes an exciting high-speed head-on pass with one of his exhibit mates. These are just two unique views of the critters at the Aquarium of the Pacific that you’ll see in this week’s blog in the video “The Aquarium’s Critters from a Different Angle”!

Possibly the best known animal at the Aquarium of the Pacific is not a shark or a sea lion. He doesn’t even know how to swim! He is Lola the Cockatoo.

Brown Pelicans Are Off the Endangered Species List | Kera  buttonLink

Brown Pelicans Are Off the Endangered Species List

They are such an incredible animal to watch hunt as they’re the bird that does a nosedive right into the water at crazy speeds. They were on the endangered species list until just recently, but that doesn’t mean they’re in the clear just yet.
