Hectic Days Are Better Than They Would Appear

No matter how hectic a day can get, I find I still have a great time while volunteering at the Aquarium of the Pacific. Senior day and the shift that followed-filled with scheduling snafus-were no exception!

Andrew, an Aquarium graphic designer and our webmaster, to the rescue!

You may think that the bird population around the Aquarium consists of sparrows, gulls, and rock pigeons. I have a story to tell about the rescue of an egret by a member of the Aquarium’s ‘dry side’ staff.
