I Am the Walrus

I’m on the fourth day of my staycation. Today, I’m heading to the New England Aquarium (NEAQ). Oh, yeah!

The NEAQ was founded in 1969 and has over 1.3 million visitors every year. The NEAQ combines “education, entertainment and action to address the most challenging problems facing the ocean. Through a wide variety of educational programs and conservation initiatives, they make a lasting impact globally.”

Some of the animals I’m excited to see include:

* African Penguin
* American Lobster
* Atlantic Harbor Seal
* Cownose Ray
* Giant Pacific Octopus
* Green Anaconda
* Green Sea Turtle
* Leafy Seadragon
* Lionfish
* Moon Jelly
* North Atlantic Right Whale
* Sand Tiger Shark

Some of the exhibits I’m looking forward to are:

* Amazing Jellies
* Amazon Rainforest
* Atlantic Harbor Seals
* Giant Ocean Tank
* Gulf of Maine
* Hands-On Areas
* Pacific Reef Community
* Penguins
* Seadragons
* Behind the Scenes
* What's New
* Presentations and Shows
* IMAX Theatre
* Whale Watch

The NEAQ is open from 9AM-5PM Monday to Friday and 9AM-6PM Saturday and Sunday. Check out the Tickets Page for costs and a list of discounts.

I wonder if they have any walrus… goo goo g'joob g'goo goo g'joob.
