Not Glamorous but Necessary-Scrubbing and Cleaning the Exhibits | Hugh  buttonLink

Not Glamorous but Necessary-Scrubbing and Cleaning the Exhibits

It’s not the most glamorous and exciting side of working with the marine mammals and other critters at the Aquarium of the Pacific but it is a necessary part. The cleaning of the exhibits and holding areas is just as important to the well-being of the animals as is their feeding and health care.

FROM A SEA LION’S POINT OF VIEW | Hugh  buttonLink

FROM A SEA LION’S POINT OF VIEW

Milo the sea lion really seems to enjoy playing with sea lion-cam. With the enthusiasm that he shows when carrying the camera rig he reminds me of a golden retriever with a favorite tennis ball. Check out Milo’s latest video creation “From a Sea Lion’s Point of View” where you’ll see the pinniped exhibit and underwater visitors tunnel from a sea lion’s perspective.

SEA LION-CAM | Hugh  buttonLink

SEA LION-CAM

The times that I spent swimming around sea lions made me admire their grace and power as they glided through their liquid domain. I wondered what it would be like to propel oneself out of the water like they do during a porpoise or other maneuver so powerfully and efficiently below the surface. This curiosity recently led me to construct an underwater camera rig that one of the Aquarium’s sea lions could voluntarily hold during one of our pinniped presentations so that we could get a look at a sea lion’s point-of view of a session. This week’s blog features a video of the first test of my “Sea Lion-Cam”.
