Our new resident octopus is featured in the news!

"Eleanora, who is roughly 2 years old, originally came from the area around Whidbey Island. She had been living at the Friday Harbor Laboratories, where she was helping researchers study the intelligence of the Giant Pacific Octopus. Now, Eleanora is a resident of the Port Townsend Marine Science Center aquarium, where she’s being featured in a film that Florian Graner, the underwater documentarian of Sealife Productions, is working on." 

Read more about how PTMSC aquarist Ali Redman and documentarian Florian Graner interact with Eleanora in the Leader's article.

And be sure to come visit Eleanora during exhibit hours; Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays, noon to 5 p.m.

Thanks to Lily Haight at the Port Townsend Leader for the feature.
