There’s More Than You Think

Volunteers are involved in other things other than regular volunteering with shifts and events. They get a chance to go places and do things that they don’t get a chance to do while actually being at the Aquarium. Read about some of my experience and a hopeful soon-to-be one.

Slower Season Still a Lot of Fun! | Josie  buttonLink

Slower Season Still a Lot of Fun!

It may be our slower time of year here at the Aquarium of the Pacific, but we still find lots of fun stuff to do since we have so many interesting animals—including an eel that had brain surgery—to discuss with our guests, some of whom don’t speak English. Our volunteers and staff handle these language situations with aplomb, often surprising everyone with their ability to sometimes speak to these guests anyway, in their own language.

No Two Days Are Ever the Same!

One of my favorite things about being a mammalogy volunteer is that when you walk through the doors early in the morning, you never know exactly what kind of different, exciting activities the day will bring!

Quarantine | David  buttonLink

Quarantine

One of the habitats I have the great pleasure of working on is P3, one of our many quarantine enclosures. Quarantining is very important for the health and well being of our animals because if we do not do it, there is a good chance our animals may become sick.

Lost on the Bus but at Home at the Aquarium | Brittany  buttonLink

Am I taking the bus again to the Aquarium any time soon? I doubt it. At least I was able to make it just in time for the New Member Night to handle some clingy sea stars and chat with some super smart kids.

Restaurant Quality, Sustainable Seafood = Happy, Healthy Animals! | Staci  buttonLink

Restaurant Quality, Sustainable Seafood = Happy, Healthy Animals!

We want all of our animals here at the Aquarium to be happy and healthy!  A key component in achieving that goal is to make sure each animal is given a high-quality, well-balanced diet.  As you might have guessed, a huge part of a marine mammal volunteer’s day is spent preparing the food that the animals will be eating that day.  This is actually a little more work than most people think, so I thought it would be fun to share some details about what our animals eat and how we go about preparing it for them.
