Oregon Coast Aquarium Section


Recommended Posts

As some of you may know, this section has been set up for the use by Oregon Coast Aquarium as an education link with them. This has been set up in hopes of a closer working relationship between Oregon Coast Aquarium and PNWMAS.

It has been two years in the planning. This is part of an agreement made previously, that we would allow the OCAQ an area at the PNWMAS website.


We will be presenting this section to Director of Animal Husbandry, Jim Burke. An introduction and guidelines for posting will then be made by a worker at OCAQ, that has not yet been appointed as Section Mod. Hopefully, programs such as this Behind-The-Scenes tour will continue in the future.


We should present this section to them without posts, as planned. This post will be removed at a later time. The "Volunteer diving at the Oregon Coast Aquarium" has been relocated, for now, to the "Discovery and Educational" section. We will be starting the Hatfield Marine Science Center section, as soon as Curator, Dennis Glaze and Dr. Tim Miller Morgan post their introduction and posting guidelines. Thanks.
