It’s a Pinniped Party

December 8, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm


We are wrapping up Walrus Awareness Week by celebrating ALL of our flippered friends! While Mystic Aquarium does not have the privilege to care for walruses, we feel it is important to not only support our colleagues who do, but to highlight their world-class animal care, research and conservation efforts.

That is why we are inviting you to join us as we celebrate the magnificent walrus with special events and activities right here at Mystic Aquarium. Plus, you can visit with a host of other pinniped species including California sea lions, Steller sea lions, Northern fur seals and harbor seals all while discovering what makes each species unique.

Activities include:

  • Real-time web chat with a walrus holding facility and Q&A session with a pinniped trainer
  • A pinniped lab station where you can become an honorary marine mammologist
  • Pinniped puzzles, fur samples, teeth and more that will show off the difference between each animal
  • An arctic adaptions table where you can discover how these animals survive and thrive
  • A walrus maze where you can help a walrus in its migration
  • The scoop on their poop
  • Video feed of Round Island off Alaska; home to the Walrus Islands State Game Sanctuary
