Last week Senior Aquarist Lauren Harper told us about hatchery watch with The Leatherback Trust. This organization is based in Costa Rica and works to conserve the critically endangered leatherback sea turtle.
Today she shares her experience witnessing a leatherback sea turtle nesting in our In Focus Blog. Lauren took the photo here of the sea turtle’s tracks to commemorate this life-changing moment. It has inspired her to raise awareness about issues affecting sea turtles.

Join us this weekend for our 12th annual International Children’s Day Festival, celebrating the amazing talents of children of many cultures. West African, Mexican, Pacific Islander, Cambodian, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Persian, Irish, Slovak, and Czech dance are among the children’s performances, along with martial arts demonstrations and an international children’s choir. Admission to the festival is included with general admission.

Earlier this month we hosted the We All Grow Blogger Summit and our chefs made the most amazing meal! Everyone's favorite had to be the Harbor View Short Rib, served with PINK mashed potatoes! They're made with roasted red beets to give it a pink hue. Interested in hosting your next event at the Aquarium? Visit for more information. #aquariumofthepacific

Pretty sure we made the same face the first time we saw an otter. Who are we kidding, we make that face every time! 😱😍 Photo by @essentialnurse #loveaop

Our days at the aquarium provide memories my boys will have forever. Their shaggy shark souvenirs will be keepsakes they can play with and cherish for years to come. 🦈
