Miller the Sea Lion’s 29th Birthday | Hugh  buttonLink

Miller the Sea Lion’s 29th Birthday

One of the wonderful benefits of aquariums and zoos is that they allow some rescued wildlife a second chance at life.

RESCUING AN ENTANGLED GRAY WHALE

In my over 20 years of being involved with marine mammals I’ve had some memorable moments.  One of the most memorable was the day back in the early 1990s when a whale research crew that I was part of helped a Bay Watch Lifeguard rescue an entangled gray whale just offshore of the cliffs of Point Vicente.  The following story is about that day.

Guests visiting the Aquarium of the Pacific during the holidays have noticed our beautiful snowflakes hanging throughout. They are always surprised to find out that they were made by staff and that they are easy to make yourself. Not only that, they are a great way to use up those old plastic six-pack rings!

A CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH BOBCATS | Hugh  buttonLink

A CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH BOBCATS

The watershed of Southern California through its rivers, creeks, and washes, feeds wetland areas that support biodiversity within our urban environment. These wetlands help maintain an environmental food chain that runs from the tiniest worm and plant to high end carnivores On a walk through one of these wetlands earlier this year, my wife Pam and I encountered one of these high end carnivores in the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary in Irvine, California.
