Today I joined Marije at the OSC to have a closer look at the seals and touch-tank animals that live there.

As a part of its public outreach program, the OSC has been host to many schools in the area. Today the students came to learn about fish, invertebrates, and to help out with the seals.

Here are some pictures:
