The Chaos of an Aquatic Life

From monitoring tanks at home, to diving in tanks at work, this is all about the daily drama, stress, mis-haps, bloopers, lessons, and joys as well as tragedies that are ever-present in a Life-Aquatic.

    PART 1:
    Now I am used to sportin the khakis and all, but slipping on knee-high huge rubber boots, and a Sac Zoo shirt was definitely something new. It takes a little getting used to clomping around in those things. No biggie though, just had to flop around a few times in my front yard before I got the "walk" down. LOL
    So I got to the zoo, went into my new boss' office and handed her my shot record - containing about 12 new stamps on them!
    Then I was being led to the main ...
  4. Ocean's Advocate

    The beginning is always the hardest.

    Starting a non-profit organization is not something you wake up one morning and think "Hmm that sounds like fun, let's do it!" Rather, it's something that you see far ahead, before it's ever attainable, something that you ...
