Every now and again it’s great fun to tag along with a school group of touring children, to enjoy their enthusiasm for the Aquarium of the Pacific as well as to enlighten them with facts about our wonderful animals and our waves exhibit.

Yeah! New Aquarium 101 program went well! | Josie  buttonLink

Yeah! New Aquarium 101 program went well!

The volunteer training team launched our first one-day Aquarium 101 session, which despite a few glitches, went quite well, much to our relief and that of our director of Volunteer Services. What a fun day we had, too, energized, as always, by the incredible enthusiasm and interest of our new volunteers.

Counting Down to 2008 | Staci  buttonLink

As much as I love writing about animals, I think I’m going to take this blog entry in a different direction.  As we get ready to bid farewell to another year, I always like to think back and reflect on year’s past.  When I first interviewed to volunteer at the Aquarium, all I could think about was being able to learn about and help care for an awesome collection of animals.  What I didn’t count on, however, was the amazing group of dedicated individuals that I would get to work with and learn from!

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.

HOLIDAYS WITH THE CRITTERS | Hugh  buttonLink

HOLIDAYS WITH THE CRITTERS

There are only a few days out of the year where the Aquarium of the Pacific is closed to the public. One of them is Christmas day. However, like working on a farm, people who care for animals can’t all take the whole day off because the fishes, mammals and birds still need to be fed and tended to, so on Christmas day there will be a small cadre of husbandry staff spending the holiday with the critters.
