LORIKEET HAPPY HOUR | Hugh  buttonLink

LORIKEET HAPPY HOUR

After a long day of entertaining visitors to Lorikeet Forest, Piper, Bo and the rest of the Lories occasionally look forward to an Avian “Happy Hour” after the last guest has left. These frenzied flock of feathered frolickers take in the fun of bowls of smoothies and nectar and the opening of the toy-box!

Make Way For Ducklings | Hugh  buttonLink

Make Way For Ducklings

The staff at the Aquarium not only talks the talk when it comes to protecting Nature—-they also walk the walk and for a family of ducks, they were their Guardian Angels. This is the story of how three husbandry staffers helped a female Mallard and her eight ducklings make it through the urban jungle of Long Beach and safely to the water in the Aquarium of the Pacific’s version of MAKE WAY FOR DUCKLINGS.

Lorikeets are loads of colorful fun! | Josie  buttonLink

Lorikeets are loads of colorful fun!

Lorikeet Forest was closed for a few weeks, so as soon I could, I made sure to get right back in there to see our colorful little friends and admire an exhibit upgrade that includes some new landscaping, a little remodeling of the shaded area enclosure, and new fencing. It looks pretty spiffy! Watching the birds cavort around, as they interacted with our guests, brought me back to a few amusing moments that I’ve spent in this habitat.

Up Close and Personal-The Program Animals

Lola is a cockatoo. How do I know this? Because Lola told me that he was. When program keeper Melissa had the bird on her arm and asked Lola “What are you?” Lola replied “COCKTOO!” Lola is one of the many program animals that our staff takes around the aquarium to interact with guests.

SAVING AFRICAN PENGUINS | Hugh  buttonLink

SAVING AFRICAN PENGUINS

On June 23, 2000, an ecological disaster occurred when the ore carrier MV Treasure sank off the coast of South Africa between Dassen and Robben Islands near Cape Town which supported two of the largest colonies of the African Penguin (Spheniscus demerus) in the world. Tens of thousands of penguins were in danger of dying from the oil that was surrounding their breeding beaches. A cry went out worldwide to zoos and aquariums for assistance. They sought the expertise of these facilities to help deal with this disaster. The Aquarium of the Pacific responded to the call by sending their aviculturist Karen Anderson.
