Went to the aquarium with the Emperor and the Koala Punk yesterday, much fun was had. Trajan was entranced by the Beluga’s and understandably skeptical of the Koala Punk’s rather outlandish stories about all the marine animals at the aquarium.
This green sea turtle is an excellent example of the important conservation work they do at the Vancouver Aquarium. It was rescued off Comber’s Beach in Pacific Rim Park at the end of November, 2011 and rushed to the aquarium in extreme distress, not being native to our cold waters at all. It was touch and go for some weeks but, now the turtle is thriving in the aquarium while they try to sort out the logistics of returning it to the wild (much, much farther south of here!)
