Hugh's Aquarium Views Video Number 74
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?

Hugh's Aquarium Views Video Number 55
There wasn’t a lot of staff, paid and volunteers, back when the Aquarium of the Pacific first opened in June of 1998 so my early volunteer responsibilities included a lot of duties outside the realm of marine mammal husbandry. One of which was hand feeding sharks including one of the aquarium’s charter animal, Fern.
