Sea pens are in fact living creatures! They are similar to coral in the way that clusters of polyps form and work together as one. There is a main “stalk” of the sea pen and then many “branches” of polyps that have different functions like feeding, reproducing, or ventilating the colony. . . . . . . . . . . . #seapen #glowup #funfacts #alaskasealifecenter #thealaskalife #akliving #travelalaska #alaska #alaskan #ak #seward #visitseward #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #aquarium #alaskaliving #sharingalaska #alaskamade #alaskalove #marinelife #sealife #aza

Fact about me: Coffee table books about funky-looking fish have always been a weakness of mine. #alaskasealifecenter #funkyfish
There is always something new to discover at the Center. 💙 Alaskans, don’t forget through February you can come to the Center for free on Wednesday’s! . . . . . . . #alaskasealifecenter #thealaskalife #akliving #travelalaska #alaska #alaskan #ak #seward #visitseward #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #aquarium #alaskaliving #sharingalaska #alaskamade #alaskalove #marinelife #sealife #aza
I try to make the the time I have with them, their best. I don’t consider myself a good dad....but I’ll be damned if I’m called a bad one. I don’t always make them smile and sometimes I make them cry. I’m not perfect but I’ll always try for them. They’re amazing little beings that have really humbled me over time. To me, they’re perfectly imperfect little hooligans that I will always cherish and protect when and when I can. Sorry....kinda spilled a little of myself, but I love these brown people 😅 #kids #alaskasealifecenter #roadtrip #adadandhiskids #curioushumans #love
Reposted from @alaskasealifecenter - This is Dutch, one of the four ringed seals at the Center. Ringed seals are a species of ice seal that inhabit the Arctic. Concern about depleting sea ice has ignited our research on this little known species here at the Center. Our team is trying to answer the question “how much energy does it take to be an ice seal?” This is important because if they have to swim more as the ice melts then they have to use more energy. We want to know what kind of consequences this increased energy consumption may have on these seals. Thanks to Dutch we are getting closer to answering this important research question. . . . . . . . #iceseals #seals #seal #ringedseal #alaskasealifecenter #thealaskalife #akliving #travelalaska #alaska #alaskan #ak #seward #visitseward #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #aquarium #alaskaliving #sharingalaska #alaskamade #alaskalove #marinelife #sealife #azaSharing is caring - #regrann

Last year, I donated this pair of Alaska Mittens to the Marine Life Gala to benefit the Alaska SeaLife Center. And actor Jack Black came to visit to surprise the guests and help raise funds... did he perhaps place a bid on my octopus mittens? 😊 What mitten design should I create for the 2019 Marine Life Gala? A walrus? Starfish below and puffin above? Or perhaps jellyfish? What design might raise the most $$$? #upcycledwoolsweaters #fundraiser #marinelifegala #alaskamarinelife #sealifecenter #alaskasealifecenter #octopus #mittens #protectouroceans #alaskamarinelife @jackblack @alaskasealifecenter

I love Seward! @alaskasealifecenter ・・・ WARNING! Look away! She's too cute!!! This young sea otter pup was transported to the Center after boaters in the Prince William Sound noticed her go face down in the water. No other otters were found in the area and she had been floating alone for quite some time. ASLC veterinarians are pleased with her general health and ease feeding from bottles. This little fluff ball will be visible in our ISEAU unit soon. Stay tuned for updates! #seaotter #seaotterpup #babyanimals #pup #alaskasealifecenter #alaskadaily #akliving #travelalaska #alaska #alaskan #ak #seward #visitseward #wildlife #aquarium #alaskaliving #alaskamade #alaskalove #marinelife #sealife #alaskawildlife #aza
Happy New Year!!! It’s January 1st which means Alaskan’s can sign up for their PFDs! Woot woot! (Sorry lower 48... we get paid to live here) When you sign up remember you can help non-profits, like ASLC, by donating part of your dividend with Pick Click Give. We can’t be the Alaska SeaLife Center without you 💗 #pickclickgive #alaskanlife #akgiving . . . . . . . . #alaskasealifecenter #thealaskalife #akliving #travelalaska #alaska #alaskan #ak #seward #visitseward #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #aquarium #alaskaliving #sharingalaska #alaskamade #alaskalove #marinelife #sealife #aza

One of the things our staff does every day is animal training. This behavior displayed here is called “target” where the seal is asked to hold their nose on the trainers hand or to an object. “Target” is an important basic behavior that helps animal care staff expand on more complex behaviors for research or health purposes. #target #animaltraining #animalpartnership #ringedseal #seals #seal #marinemammal . . . . . #alaskasealifecenter #thealaskalife #akliving #travelalaska #alaska #alaskan #ak #seward #visitseward #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #aquarium #alaskaliving #sharingalaska #alaskamade #alaskalove #marinelife #sealife #aza
Tyonek's Health Takes a Turn for the Worst . Following celebrations of the first anniversary of Tyonek’s rescue, SeaWorld has announced the one-year-old beluga is suffering from inflammation and digestive issues. Tyonek was found stranded on a beach back in September 2017 when he was just a few weeks old. He was initially cared for by Alaska Sea Life Center but was transferred to SeaWorld San Antonio back in February after being deemed non-releasable by NOAA Fisheries. SeaWorld have said Tyonek has battled digestive issues ever since he was rescued and, although it’s unclear how severe his condition is, they will do everything possible to help him recover. .

Pilot, our male Steller sea lion, participates in training sessions underwater! How cool is that?! His trainers can ask him different things through the glass using hand signals. He can blow bubbles, open his mouth, and stick out his tongue. #sealion #steller #amazinganimals #underwaterfun . . . . . #alaskasealifecenter #thealaskalife #akliving #travelalaska #alaska #alaskan #ak #seward #visitseward #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #aquarium #alaskaliving #sharingalaska #alaskamade #alaskalove #marinelife #sealife #aza
Did you know the ringed seal is the smallest seal in the Arctic? They rarely surpass 5 feet in length. This is Spencer, one of our male ringed seals at the Center.

Sea otter pups that enter our Wildlife Response Program are fed 1 to 2 liters of ASLC sea otter formula a day! The amount and frequency of which they receive formula is based on various factors like size, age, growth rate, fur condition, and health. #seaotter #otter #otterpup #babyotter . . . . #alaskasealifecenter #thealaskalife #akliving #travelalaska #alaska #alaskan #ak #seward #visitseward #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #aquarium #alaskaliving #sharingalaska #alaskamade #alaskalove #marinelife #sealife #aza
