Monterey Bay Aquarium活生生的水母(Jellyfish)

住 在舊金山灣區的我,在放假的時候最喜歡到17 miles、Monterey Bay, 還有Carmel小鎮這一帶去悠閒的散心。到Monterey這個地方,最受歡迎的就是Monterey Bay Aquarium了。

常用Flickr的人都應該會有印象,Flickr.com常常用一張栩栩如生的水母照片放 在首頁。那幾隻水母我一看就知道是拍攝自 Monterey Bay Aquarium裡面的那幾隻,因為我也有。既然已經有人已經在Flickr放了照片,那我提供一個更酷的 - 活生生的Jellyfish影片,是我2004年攝自Monterey Bay Aquarium。

關 於Monterey Bay Aquarium也是有一個小故事可以分享。這個Monterey Bay Aquarium現址本來是廢棄的沙丁魚工廠。1977年的時候有一群Stanford的海洋生物學家想要在Monterey這裡蓋一個水族館。其中一個 海洋生物學家叫做Julie Packard,是HP創辦人之一的David Packard的女兒。當時David Packard成立的David And Lucile Packard Foundation正在尋找贊助標的,基於女兒對海洋生物的熱愛,因此David在1978年便捐了美金$55 Million來資助這個水族館的計畫。當然到1984年開幕,David總捐助的經額遠高於這個數目。現在Julie Packard是水族館的Executive Director and Vice President。

這個水族館被AAA的VIA雜誌選為全美前三大水族館之一。
