A Year End Shell ebration November 2016—We celebrated our ten year Makana

A Year-End Shell-ebration!
November 2016—We celebrated our ten-year Makana-versary! This lovely Laysan albatross lady was part of a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service breeding program in Hawai'i. Sadly, she damaged her left wing at four months of age, making her unable to fly despite rehabilitation efforts. Makana—"gift" in Hawaiian—has been with us ever since, as an ambassador to her species and to the plastic-impacted North Pacific Gyre ecosystem.

Offshore drilling in sensitive coastal waters puts coastal economies, jobs and wildlife at unnecessary risk. That’s why we’re speaking out against the Administration’s proposed plan to open nearly all U.S. ocean waters, including six areas in California, to oil and gas drilling. Please add your voice to the effort to protect coastal waters. ⬇

It's Mola mola Monday Monday! Today's magnificent mola moment comes from this Sunday at Monastery Beach in Carmel, where a mini-mola maneuvered into maximum massage position for perch partners to pick and peck at pesky parasites!

Sarcastic fringeheads use their large jaws to show dominance and size up rivals. Any resemblance to how you’re feeling this afternoon is purely coincidental. ☕

We want to say we had the BEST time ever
on the New Years Eve slumber party!!!
All the employees were so friendly, patient, and organized. We had so much fun at the pajama dance party, and I loved getting up at 3:30am to use the restroom and seeing all the rows of contented sleepers under all the exhibits
A long-time dream come true, thank you

This rainy week reminded us of the amazing thunderstorms we saw rolling by the Aquarium this summer. We love watching puffy atmospheric ocean billowing above the skyfloor.

Spotted comb jelly ahoy! It’s always a treat when these delicate invertebrates visit the bay. This Leucothea pulchra is one of the largest of the comb jellies in our local waters. Comb jellies get their name from the eight rows of tiny comblike plates that they beat to move through the water—and in this case, right past photographer Joe Platko (IG: hiimjoe88).

That's no tuna, Jay! Ocean sunfish—aka Mola mola—are thought to sun themselves on the surface to warm up after deep dives. But if you didn't look down, you may not have even noticed a thousand-pound mola was giving you the fisheye as you cruised by!

What does a rainy day in Monterey Bay need? Umbrella jellies! Warm drinks and cozy fireplaces are good too. ☕
