Christmas in the Turtle Ward


What a beautiful morning here at NEAq. While the Aquarium is closed to the public on Christmas, the place was bustling inside. Staff members were all over the building feeding animals, cleaning exhibits, testing water chemistry, and in the case of the sea turtles, completing medical treatments.

I had to run over the the Ocean Center for additional medical supplies and caught this beautiful shot on my way back into the main Aquarium building (yes as you can tell from the blog I am rarely without a camera!). You can see the beautiful sunshine and the fog bank offshore.

With a full turtle ward, we certainly need a lot of help, even on Christmas. We're very grateful to our volunteers, who gave up their holiday to come in and help with turtle treatments, feeding and cleaning.

Happy Holidays to all creatures great and small.
