|Sea Otters in the Kelp Forest near the aquarium|
But my study? As you all know, I like to visit the living museum collections of our zoos and aquariums around the world. I do an ebird hotspot list for the wild birds found in the area while also studying their aviary collections. Many of these birds were once wild but thanks in part to places like the aquarium, these injured birds are given a second chance at life where they'll educate thousands of people (like myself).
There is something very relaxing about being in a dark area with gentle music playing in the background.
The jellyfish displays were mesmerizing!
......and more cool aquariums.......
.....and pretty Buffleheads......
....and lots of wild birds feeding around the waters outside of the aquarium:)
