Harpo the Sea Lion’s Tip about the Aquarium’s Water Bottle Filling Station
Harpo the sea lion and mammalogist Katie made a video about the Aquarium of the Pacific's water bottle filling stations.

It’s a great tip that saves money and helps the environment so Harpo the sea lion and I decided to get the word out about the Aquarium of the Pacific’s water bottle filling stations.

The wonderful thing about knowing a sea lion since he was a pup is that you can get on the same wavelength with the critter when you have an idea for a project you want to get done quickly.

In this case I wanted to get a video together showing the water bottle filling stations that the aquarium installed. Visitors can not only help themselves save money by not purchasing single use water bottle and bringing their own reusable and refillable bottle instead, they are also helping the environment by lessening the amount of plastic waste that can find their way to the ocean.

From the start Harpo got the idea of what I wanted him to do. In the underwater tunnel he perfectly place himself exactly where I wanted him to be for the first video sequence. When you build a strong long term relationship with an animal they can figure out want you want by watching your gestures and expressions.

Check out the video of Harpo the sea lion’s PSA (Public Service Announcement) video on reusable water bottles.

Water bottle filling stations have been installed at the Aquarium of the Pacific. Bring your reusable and refillable water bottles on your next visit and not only save money, but also help reduce the amount of plastic waste that can make its way to the oceans.
