Retrievals act as both a physical exercise behavior that helps keep our critters fit, and is also a fun activity that is mentally stimulating for the animal. It’s also fun for the staff!

We keep our sea lions, seals, and sea otters mentally stimulated by occasionally introducing various enrichments for them to experience. Did you know that we do the same for our sharks?

Outside of the Aquarium of the Pacific’s staff entrance sits a memorial to the very first Aquarium animal. The first Aquarium critter wasn’t a fish or seal. It was, surprisingly, a cat named Topaz.
