German Guests Get Private Tour | Josie  buttonLink

German Guests Get Private Tour

Through my blog, I met two of the nicest people, who came from Germany to visit Long Beach for two days before embarking on a cruise to Mexico and Puerto Rico. The day ended with a $20 donation to the Aquarium of the Pacific’s education department.

Kindergarten Is Great for People of All Ages | Josie  buttonLink

Kindergarten Is Great for People of All Ages

Going to kindergarten can be loads of fun, even when you’re an adult like me. I greatly enjoy my monthly forays back into the classroom worlds of little children, where I get to see the enthusiasm and lust for learning that one experiences when young.

MLPA, MPA, SMR, SMP, SMCA: Speaking ‘MPAese’ | Corinne  buttonLink

MLPA, MPA, SMR, SMP, SMCA: Speaking ‘MPAese’

Get ready to learn a new language, California’s salty MPAese.  On December 6, 2007 Secretary for Resources Mike Chrisman announced that the south coast from Point Conception to the US-Mexican border (an area commonly called the Southern California Bight) would be the next study area in which Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) would be identified as part of the implementation of California’s Marine Life Protection Act Initiative.

Meeting People From Other Countries Is a Great Way to Get In Some Practice Speaking Foreign Language

Many people from various other parts of the world visit the Aquarium of the Pacific regularly, and I’m lucky enough to be able to speak with some of them in their native tongues.

Being an Aquarium 101 Trainer is Great | Josie  buttonLink

Being a part of the Aquarium 101 training team is a great way to meet new volunteers as they begin to learn about the Aquarium, our mission, our animals, and all sorts of other things. Starting in January, we’ll hold one-day sessions instead of the two-day program we’ve held until now; we hope this change will help those who found it difficult to be away from their families on two consecutive Saturdays.

There’s More Than You Think | Brittany  buttonLink

There’s More Than You Think

Volunteers are involved in other things other than regular volunteering with shifts and events. They get a chance to go places and do things that they don’t get a chance to do while actually being at the Aquarium. Read about some of my experience and a hopeful soon-to-be one.

Slower Season Still a Lot of Fun! | Josie  buttonLink

Slower Season Still a Lot of Fun!

It may be our slower time of year here at the Aquarium of the Pacific, but we still find lots of fun stuff to do since we have so many interesting animals—including an eel that had brain surgery—to discuss with our guests, some of whom don’t speak English. Our volunteers and staff handle these language situations with aplomb, often surprising everyone with their ability to sometimes speak to these guests anyway, in their own language.
