Skeleton of A9 brought to life
Last week, Mike was asked to visit the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre in Sidney, BC, to help bring life to the skeleton of A9 which had been on display at the aquarium but wasn't creating as much of a stir as a skeleton such as hers should have. Together with a group of core volunteers from the aquarium, A9 was moved, her flippers were re-articulated for anatomical accuracy then repositioned along with her skull. An interpretive dorsal fin and tail fluke were also fabricated to complete the display. Now, as visitors walk through the aquarium, A9 swims toward them as she would have moved in life.
