Mote Marine Aquarium Happenings

mote-aquariumRare Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtle at Mote for Rehab After Swallowing Balloon

An endangered Kemp’s ridley sea turtle (Lepidochelys kempii) has been brought to Mote’s Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Hospital after it swallowed a balloon — an episode that we hope will remind residents and visitors to stow their trash carefully.

The 3.3-pound young turtle washed up on a sandbar near the south end of Lido Key on Tuesday, July 14, with what appeared to be fishing line hanging from its mouth. Concerned swimmers called Mote biologists, who brought the Kemp’s ridley to Mote’s Sea Turtle Hospital.

New Kids Carrier Exhibit, Blast Off! Space Day Highlight Month of July

July 20, 2009

naval-aviation-museumPensacola, Fla.–July 7, 2009–The National Naval Aviation Museum will conduct a ribbon cutting ceremony for its newest attraction, an kids aircraft carrier exhibit (inside Museum), at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 21 near the west wing to the left of the IMAXÆ Theatre. The new kids exhibit, modeled to look like the “island” of an aircraft carrier deck, is open to the public. Featuring many items that are found on a real aircraft carrier, kids delight in playing with a fireman’s pole, rope ladders, binoculars, periscopes and a Captain’s wheel. Kids are able to play with interactive devices such as buttons to push for ship sounds, an intercom system set up in three different locations and flags with a pulley system. Mock control panels and plasma screens with “views” from the ship give kids the sense that they are on a real aircraft carrier. The carrier exhibit also features two slides, regular and tubed. For safety, rubber mats surround the floor of the island, and handicap access is available on the bottom floor. Kids 10 and under will have the opportunity to enter a contest to name the aircraft carrier exhibit. The child with the winning selection will win a child’s flight jacket from the Museum’s Flight Deck Store.
