DescriptionThe Aquarium will celebrate Animal Enrichment Day on Wednesday, March 27.

Animal Enrichment Day showcases the variety of ways that Aquarium staff keep our animals—from sea otters and harbor seals to octopuses and wolf eels—stimulated, healthy and entertained.

Guests will learn how enrichment keeps the Aquarium critters busy through animal presentations, guest displays and activity booths. They can try to paint like a sea lion, play sturgeon soccer and even learn how to enrich their own pets at home from the Lincoln County Animal Shelter. Those impressed by our artistic pinnipeds can enter raffles to win a one-of-a-kind pinniped painting.

“Attending to an animal’s mental well-being is just as important as suitable housing, top-notch veterinary care and the best food available,” said Sage Butts, Assistant Curator of Fish and Invertebrates. “Aquarium staff meet this need by devising specialized items and experiences, called enrichment, that encourage natural behaviors.”

Enrichment Day activities are included with Aquarium admission, and every Wednesday, Lincoln County residents receive $5 admission. Sea otter, pinniped, bird, and shark enrichment presentations are scheduled from 10 AM to 4 PM.

To accommodate the crowd of spring break coastal visitors, the Aquarium will also stay open an extra hour, until 6 PM, from March 23 to April 7. Visit aquarium.org or call 541-867-FISH for more information or to purchase advance tickets.
