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.

Hectic Days Are Better Than They Would Appear

No matter how hectic a day can get, I find I still have a great time while volunteering at the Aquarium of the Pacific. Senior day and the shift that followed-filled with scheduling snafus-were no exception!

Welcome Odin, our newest California sea lion! | Staci  buttonLink

Welcome Odin, our newest California sea lion!

I’m pleased to report that we have another new addition to our pinniped family at the Aquarium! A rescued two-year-old male California sea lion joined current residents Miller, Parker, Shelby, Ellie, and newcomer Troy this past Thursday in the Seal and Sea Lion Habitat. I encourage everyone to come on out and see Odin living it up in his new home.  Isn’t it nice when a rescue story has a happy ending?

Learning About Gulf of California Inhabitants

With slower times around the Aquarium of the Pacific, now that summer has ended and school groups have not been organized yet, we have more time to catch up on our underwater friends, and I’m working hard to learn all the fish in one of my new favorite habitats, the Gulf of California exhibit.
