Join hosts Erin Lundy and Madeline Walden on a deep dive of Aquarium of the Pacific animals, conservation efforts, careers, and more!
Mountain Yellow-Legged Frog
This week we talk to Podcific's own Erin Lundy all about the mountain yellow-legged frog! Leaping into conservation efforts to aid in the recovery of this species, the Aquarium of the Pacific built a lab space to care for these critically endangered amphibians native to California’s mountain regions.
Learn more about the Aquarium's mountain yellow-legged frog conservation efforts on our website.
Building New Exhibits and Maintaining our Aquarium
What does it take to maintain a world-class Aquarium? World-class teams! Today on Aquarium of the Podcific, we are joined by Mike Davis and Reed Edwards to discuss the duties of their respective teams and what it was like building the new exhibits inside our reimagined Southern California Gallery.
The reimagined Southern California Gallery is now open!
It's an octopus double feature! This week we have Aquarium of the Pacific's own Brooke Hernandez talking to us about her experience caring for the giant Pacific octopus, and Octonation founder Warren Carlyle discussing his work in creating the world's largest octopus fan club.
