In response to members’ request for a bus trip to popular aquariums, we provide this option sheet. The locations are the Boston Aquarium, Baltimore Aquarium or the Riverhead Aquarium. The location with the most votes will be investigated for costs and time factors. These are really great fun day trips, the sort of trip most of us would never do on our own. We leave & depart from NY Aquarium early in the morning and arrive back at the NY Aquarium that evening. The trip is planned for the Spring, on a weekend, either in April or May, 2017. At the November 11 Event we’ll have questionnaires to see what dates would be best for members. The selected location will be announced at our January event, along with the associated costs. Full payment must be received by the March 10th Event.

An octopus has made a brazen escape from the national aquarium in New Zealand by breaking out of its tank, slithering down a 50m drain pipe and disappearing into the sea.
In scenes reminiscent of Finding Nemo, Inky – a common New Zealand octopus – made his dash to freedom after the lid of his tank was accidentally left slightly ajar.
Staff believe that in the middle of the night, while the aquarium was deserted, Inky clambered to the top of his cage, down the side of the tank and traveled across the floor of the aquarium…
