Amphibians and harbour porpoises

As we were scheduled to have volunteer training at the Vancouver Aquarium today, we definitely had to have a look at some of their animals before training to get into the right spirit for it…

So we went down some stairs to see and read more about the amphibians, among them tiger salamanders, Amazonian horned frogs and big-eyed treefrogs. We also saw my favourite amphibians, the axolotls, but they were quite hidden and a bit camera-shy.

Although we did not have a lot of time, we had to check on Jack and Daisy. Fortunately for us, both harbour porpoises were actively coming to the underwater viewing area so that we did indeed have much fun with them.

Tomorrow there will be our second special volunteer training session – and this can only mean one thing — we have to come a bit earlier to sneak a peek at our favourite harbour porpoises…
