Otter Wish List | Hugh  buttonLink

Otter Wish List

It was one of the cutest and most fun enrichment sessions I’ve had with the otters. A simple child-like teething toy that the Furball was greatly enjoying was bringing a big smile to my face. As she chewed and tugged on the durable plaything I thought to myself how neat it was that such a simple item could bring so much happiness to this otter. Now the public has a chance to help enrich the lives of our critters by way of the Animal Care Wish List.

The February of Fins | Julien  buttonLink

The February of Fins

This February has been a fantastic month for whale sightings! Not only have we been seeing the transition between the south-bound and north-bound gray whale migration, but have been seeing fin whales almost daily! From the beginning of the month to Valentine’s, we have recorded 39 gray whale sightings and an even more impressive 55 fin whale sightings.

Love is in the Air for Gray Whales Too! | Kera  buttonLink

Love is in the Air for Gray Whales Too!

When we get in to February, the first thing I think of is Valentine’s Day. It looks like the grays ways feel the same way because on February 1, 2013, we had some incredible mating behavior with gray whales right in front of our boat. Read on to find out what that encounter was like.
