My favorite animal: Seahorses. I've saved an article out of the LA Times since it was published in November of 2005. This means this section of newspaper has survived three years, a move, and countless purges in my office. All because it talks about some baby seahorses that showed up at LAX customs and were now being reared at an aquarium in Long Beach.
Still haven't made it over to visit the seahorses, but still saving the section of newspaper. Thus this blog post.
Some day soon I will go to check out SEA Lab, a hands-on coastal science education center in Redondo Beach that offers free and low cost programs for children of all ages to enjoy.
From their website:
The site was originally founded in 1974 as the Edison Marine Research Laboratory to develop a state-of-the-art fish protection system - the very one still in use today at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. Twenty years later, Southern California Edison, together with Earth Island Institute, decided to convert the site into a coastal science education center. LA Conservation Corps was selected to develop and manage the new SEA Lab as one of its programs.
In addition to its in-center programs, the SEA Lab extends its offerings into the community through summer camp programs, community service projects and the Traveling Tidepool mobile exhibit. All of the activities are operated by college students trained by the Los Angeles Conservation Corps, who receive help from more than 100 dedicated local volunteers.
