Last weekend, my family went to the New York Aquarium (as “media”) to review the new 1,500-square-foot exhibit called A-MAZE-ING Water that is there through September 9th. I will write about that tomorrow, but first I just have to share the part of the trip that was most memorable to me…the Sea Lion Celebration at the Aquatheater!
I was sitting in the front row with Sean while Reggie and Michael sat a few rows behind us. It was hot outside, but the show was so much fun that we didn’t really mind. The first sea lion to perform was Duke. Below is a snippet of his (great) performance:
Despite my little scare, it was great fun to see the sea lions perform and to hear about the various initiatives of the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS). One even that was mentioned was the 2012 WCS Run for the Wild, a 5K run/walk in Brooklyn. The proceeds from this year’s run are being dedicated to saving walruses and other wildlife. If you are a runner and have a heart for wildlife, then you might be interested in the Saturday, October 6th 5K Run that takes place at 8am or the Family Fun Run/Walk that takes place at 8:45am.
