Celebrating Marine Life

I love penguins and it is a joy to watch them at the New England aquarium – they are at the base of the giant ocean tank that is such a signature feature at the aquarium. This a truly magnificent area several stories high and full of breathtaking marine life and I include a few snapshots taken with my  phone.  There are also many other small tanks to see that some people overlook – windows onto many ocean worlds.  For example the Pacific North West wave tank is small but full of stunning Giant Green Anemones with some beautiful Surfperch.
