Did you know that today is Endangered Species Day, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the federal Endangered Species Act? We rescue, study and care for many endangered species at the Aquarium, in cooperation with government agencies. These include snowy plovers, sharks, sea otters, penguins, rockfish and albatross. How will you celebrate this special day?
What’s the best job ever? After watching this AMAZING video, we think you’ll agree: sea otter aquarist!
Are you feeling a bit of trepidation this Monday, like our friend Gidget? We hope you have a great week! (Thanks to sea otter aquarist Nikki Dinsmore for being so quick with a camera.)
Our renovated Sea Otter exhibit includes an area we fondly call “the spa.” Gidget, Kit and Ivy seem to approve of this new feature, don’t you think? We hope your #Monday is going this swimmingly!
Thanks to Sea Otter Aquarist Nikki Dinsmore for the great photo!
Remember Kit? She’s back! You can see her now on exhibit with Gidget and Ivy.
