Love is in the air

Not only have we seen lots of courting and potential mating behavior from our cetaceans, but a few more great sightings of the pacific white-sided dolphins. Our interns have captured photos of fin whales, gray whales, and common dolphins exhibiting courting and mating behaviors.

Ten Thousand Volunteer Hours Later…

Hugh's Aquarium Views Video Number 24

Back in 1998, instead of spending my day watching television or surfing the web, I decided that I would spend my Saturdays volunteering my time helping to take care of the critters at the Aquarium of the Pacific. Ten thousand volunteer hours later I’m still there.
