It’s official. This last weekend I took the test and passed to become a certified touchpool volunteer at the Albuquerque Aquarium.
I did it. I finished my last shadow shift that is required before I can take the certification test to become a certified aquarium volunteer.
I worked my first training session on running the invertebrate touchpool at the Albuquerque Aquarium. It is a completely different experience than volunteering at the Shark and Ray Encounter. Both the volunteers and the aquarium guests get to spend much more time interacting with the animals.
A trip to my local fish store (LFS) last week turned into an adventure in setting up my first brackish aquarium. They had just received a shipment of figure 8 and green spotted puffers. How could I resist?
