Happy Earth Day! The New York Aquarium.

Today my lab class went to Coney Island to visit the New York Aquarium! We had a lot of fun on our tou but we weren't there for all fun and games.  We were doing research for our next project- designing the New York Aquarium's float for the annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade!
The New York Aquarium is part of the Wildlife Conservation Society, along with the Bronx Zoo, Central Park Zoo, Prospect Park Zoo in Brooklyn, and the Queens Zoo.
The Mermaid Parade is Saturday, June 19th!
Here are some pictures from the aquarium trip:
The penguins were showing off for us!
The sea turtle is my main man.
OCTOPUS! He is rad but I felt bad for him. Imagine having to live in such a tiny space all the time?
I learned that otters can hold their breath for up to five minutes!
The sea lion show! We were definitely the oldest group of people there.

The rides were all closed. :[
Aquarium mural.
Beach and boardwalk!

I took a video of some jellyfish floating around.
