Happy #PenguinAwarenessDay! These birds may not be able to fly in the air, but watch them speed through the sea to grab a snack. Using their wings as flippers and their feet as rudders, they gracefully chase down schools of fish. Let’s hear it for penguins! 🐧👏 #pengwinning #wingingit #montereybayaquarium

Offshore drilling in sensitive coastal waters puts coastal economies, jobs and wildlife at unnecessary risk. That’s why we’re speaking out against the Administration’s proposed plan to open nearly all U.S. ocean waters, including six areas in California, to oil and gas drilling. Please add your voice to the effort to protect coastal waters by following the link in our profile. #youotterknow #protectourcoasts #montereybayaquarium

Spotted comb jelly ahoy! It’s always a treat when these delicate invertebrates visit the bay. This Leucothea pulchra is one of the largest of the comb jellies in our local waters. Comb jellies get their name from the eight rows of tiny comblike plates that they beat to move through the water—and in this case, right past photographer @hiimjoe88 at San Carlos Beach, at the end of Cannery Row. #ajellycantchangeitsspots #butwhywoulditwantto? #jellytime #montereybayaquarium

That's no tuna, Jay! Ocean sunfish—aka Mola mola—are thought to sun themselves on the surface to warm up after deep dives. But if you didn't look down, you may not have even noticed a thousand-pound mola was giving you the fisheye as you cruised by! There are loads of sunfish in the Monterey Bay at the moment, dining on gelatinous fare. Yes, we know, it looks hurt or something—but that's just how these masterful molas look, there's no need to the call the Aquarium! 😉 #sunfinsfishy #amolaplaneimpression #grayscaletipper

Since our plover rescue and rehabilitation program began in 2000, we've successfully released over 140 birds and counting! #puttingtheloveinplover #ploverit #montereybayaquarium

The ocean provides more than 50% of the world’s oxygen, food for billions of people, and is home to countless incredible creatures. The Administration’s reckless offshore drilling plan would threaten coastal economies, fisheries and wildlife. Our remarkable marine ecosystems—and all of us who depend on them—deserve better. #montereybayaquarium

They grow up so fast! When our two young mola mola went on exhibit in August, they weighed around 14 pounds each. Our latest measurements show that one has reached 45 pounds and the other’s reached 60 pounds. These wonderfully weird-looking fish hatch from tiny eggs, but grow to weigh more than a pickup truck! #omnomola #molamolamadness #montereybayaquarium

It's almost time to pop the bubbly! Our ocean sunfish is apparently a party animal, and got a little carried away with the bubble curtain in our Open Sea exhibit... Another year, another lap around the sunfish! The bubble curtain comes on at night so that sleep-swimming fishes know where the window is and they don't go bump in the night—kind of like an air-based nightlight! We wish you our best fishes for a Happy New Year! #🎊 #montereybayaquarium #newyearseve #molappynewyear #weshoulddoaballdropbutinsteadofaballitsamola #popthebubbly

The results are in: here’s our #2017bestnine! Apparently, 2017 has been another otterly pawesome year—with a few notable exceptions, filled with a different kind of hope. In the top spot is Otter 808, the latest admittance into our Sea Otter Program. Orphaned as a result of a shark bite—but with a fast and furryous attitude—we hope to return him to his wild home. But there's a lot more to this scientific effort than (just) cute sea otter pups. Picture 2 is resident otter Gidget, whose DNA is the basis of the newly sequenced sea otter genome. The molecular script of Gidget's genes will help us read the slow sea otter recovery along the California Coast—and maybe, someday, beyond. Because in Picture 3 we find Lincoln—né Otter 805—happily splashing about his new @OregonZoo home. Perhaps Lincoln will serve as inspiration to Oregonians that sea otters may one day return to their shores—along which many snowy plovers may be seeking refuge. Indeed, Picture 4 catches a rescued snowy plover as it strolls through our Aviary, a member of another rescue program helping keep the local community of wildlife staffed with all of its players. Because Pictures 5 through 8 actually depict sea otters on their way to fulfilling their role as the world’s cutest keystone species. Having recovered from near-extinction, several wild otters have been born right outside of our Aquarium in recent years, joined by our rescues rebuilding California’s biological coastline. From this species, we know that conservation works, and that the ocean heals if we care. And the final photo depicts a sunrise through our windows over the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, a national treasure recently assailed by shortsighted politics. When we asked for your help, you stepped up and made your voices heard in a big way. As we head into 2018, we're proud to have you by our side to continue inspiring conservation of the ocean—we’ll have a few more otter pictures for you to be sure. 😉 #montereybayaquarium #thankyou #onward!

This pawesome pup survived a shark bite! Otter 808 is the latest addition to our Sea Otter Program, and we're hard at work getting him ready for release back to the wild. As you consider your year-end donations, thank you for considering supporting sea otters—like Otter 808—and about 30,000 other animals at the Aquarium as we expand our Animal Care Center. Your gift will help us care for stranded sea otter pups, rescue injured shorebirds, raise generations of jellies and so much more. Follow the link in our profile if you wanted to pitch in. Thank you for joining us, and for helping 808's future! #montereybayaquarium #otter808 #yearendpupdate #darthvaderismymom
