Simba the Sea Lion

One of the memorable field trips I had with my 5th Grader was the trip to Ocean Adventure in Subic (Olongapo) last Feb. 4. I took a lot of photos during the trip but not the quality ones taken by a DSLR camera (wish I had one :)).

This is Simba, the popular sea lion that regularly performs at the Nautilus Theater along with other members of the Sea Lion Marine Patrol team.

The delightful sea creature and its trainer (Kuya Randy, not in photo) teach kids and adults about the value of 3Rs – reuse, reduce and recycle, through a very lively and entertaining show. 

fyi: Did you know that plastic containers thrown into the sea pollute the water and kill sea lions and other animals that live in it?
