Employees have stayed around the clock, particularly to care for Mitik the baby walrus who just joined the ranks of the aquarium. There are generators working to support the most fragile environments. I pray that the city feels this wonderful place, this delicate fragile mini-ecosystem, deserves prioritization.
And along the same line of thought of not just caring about the famous, don't forget to save the cold-blooded creatures and invertebrates! Mammals get all the attention.
