A group of 24 Aquarium Youth Ocean Advocates, adult volunteers and staff recently spent time working with King County Parks to plant 725 trees at Soaring Eagle Regional Park in Sammamish. The Aquarium partners with Forterra to purchase trees and coordinate the effort to plant them in Seattle-area parks and forests to help sequester the carbon output from the Aquarium. This was our third year in a row of partnering with Forterra on this project and it also attracted the largest-ever group of Aquarium volunteers to help plant the trees!

A local troop of Brownies, second and third graders from Redmond, are supporting the Seattle Aquarium with a portion of their Girl Scout cookies this year! The troop voted in January and chose ocean conservation as a cause they wanted to serve—and the Aquarium as the recipient of their donations. They even made a video about why it’s important to care for our marine environment. Watch the video here: http://blog.seattleaquarium.org/seattle-aquarium/brownie-troop-supports-aquarium/. #OceanConservation

The Seattle Aquarium recently completed its seventh year of a research project off the northwest coast Hawaii’s Big Island: monitoring reef fish abundance. Data is gathered using a method similar to the one used in our temperate fish surveys: non-invasive monitoring through diver-performed video sampling.

Humpbacks, gray whales and new baby orcas! #whales
In a sea of bad news, some good news regarding whales on two fronts came out of the Pacific Whale Watch Association conference Monday in Anacortes.

On February 22, Seattle Aquarium biologists escorted Franklin, a male giant Pacific #octopus to a new home below our pier. Here is a video clip from the release. #OctopusWeek #OctopusWeek

Adult ‪#‎cuttlefishes‬ in the wild prey on shrimp, crabs and fish. They rely on their camouflage to sneak up on their prey. If their desired meal is partially hidden by sand, they can squirt out a jet of water to uncover it. Then they quickly open their eight arms and shoot out two long feeding tentacles to grab the prey and pull it toward their sharp beaks and, eventually, their mouths.

Learn more about the dwarf cuttlefish online with our ‪#‎animalfact‬ sheet: SeattleAquarium.org/dwarf-cuttlefish.

Did you know Seattle's new #seawall along Elliott Bay will also provide a safe highway for fish to the sea? Pretty cool!
Seattle’s getting a new Elliott Bay seawall, and a very small part of this very big job is to give migrating juvenile salmon a safer route to the sea.
