Monterey Bay Aquarium

Today we visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium, a public aquarium that has been involved in a variety of marine research projects that I’ve read about over the years. Scientists from the Monterey Bay Aquarium have studied great white sharks, sea otters, Pacific tuna, and various other water-dwelling critters.
