Little blue penguins
The little blue penguins at the Aquarium spend a good chunk of their day swimming in the 150,000-gallon exhibit. You can watch them groom, speed swim and just take pleasant little jaunts around their island.

Front row seals
Visitors get front row seats to observe the harbor seals during a training session. The trainers teach skills that help with medical care—like open wide for teeth brushing or let me rub your belly to check your fur. Come see!

Funny Story
One of our young visitors is a big fan of our seals and sea lions. (Like, who isn't?) In fact, she grew to love peas after watching this video of Zoe enjoying her tiny green vegetables! WATCH: http://trainers.neaq.org/2015/01/fun-with-peas.html

Penguins can fly!
If you thought penguins don't fly, you obviously haven't seen them in the water. They're fast! All three species of penguin on exhibit—African, rockhopper and little blue—zip through our 150,000-gallon exhibit.

Come visit for a bird's eye-view of the these beautiful birds. http://www.neaq.org/visit #penguins   #animal   #gifs

The scale of life on a reef always amazed me.
You can spend your bottom time entertained by the macro - the swimming creatures as you glide over the reef, or you can settle by a single coral head and the closer you look the more you find.
Sitting at about 15 feet on a safety stop at the end of a dive next to a small coral head just larger than a basketball, I noticed the texture of small holes about the diameter of a pencil covering it.
Looking closer, I found each hole had a tiny face looking back at me!
The competition for space on the reef is revealed when you look at the micro. Coralline alga, encrusting sponge, tube worms - everything bumping into everything else as all available space is claimed as a toehold on the richest real estate there is - the reef.

Inspiring ocean protectors
The Aquarium seeks to engage people of all ages, on all levels. Sometimes that means coloring on the floor of the Blue Planet Action Center. Sometimes that means hosting free evening lectures on current research and conservation in our IMAX Theatre.

Good Read
Check out this story from the New York Times about our Marine Conservation Action Fund. It's just one way the New England Aquarium is making a difference for the ocean around the world.

Go Fish!
Three cheers to our hardy New England Aquarium marathon team, getting ready to cross the start line for this year's Boston Marathon! Find these clownfish-inspired shirts on the course and give our runners a whoop today. Not only are they running 26.2 miles (woot-woot!), they're helping to inspire future ocean protectors.

Commander: 400 pounds of handsome
This handsome Northern fur seal arrived from the Seattle Aquarium earlier this year. After a quarantine period, he's been spending more and more time on exhibit—much to our visitors' delight!

See more pictures of him here: http://trainers.neaq.org/2015/04/commander-settling-in.html

A giant glass tank spiraled by a multilevel walkway is the main draw at this waterfront attraction.- Google
