I hope everyone has been staying dry, unless you’ve been on a whale watch where you’ll have to get a little rainy to see all the amazing things there has been in the last few weeks. Plenty of lunge feeding or breaching humpbacks, breaching and feeding grays, as well as plenty of dolphins!

Nearly everyone has a “Happy Place” that they can dream about. My happy place dreams tend to have a lot of otters and other critters in it. In this week’s Hugh’s Aquarium Views video, I try to visually interpret and share some those happy place dreams.

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?

It’s been a lovely couple of weeks, minus some of the storms and getting rained out, but when we were out on the water there was plenty of sea life to explore and observe. Humpback whales, fin whales, gray whales including some cow/calf pairs, and lots of dolphins!
