Is it safe for the animals?
At Traveling Tide Pools our business revolves around the safety and well being of our live animal cast. This presents unique challenges which require us to hire marine biologists and aquarists to provide care and attend our events. Salt water aquariums are an extremely fragile environment and require specialized filters, chemicals and equipment to run successfully. Our animals are specifically selected to be a part of our program because of their hardiness and ability to cope with environmental changes. We have over 1000 gallons of holding tanks, hospital tanks and other recourses at our disposal to react to any situation to insure our animals continue to thrive. We periodically rotate animals to keep them healthy as well as bring a new experience to future events! We believe in full disclosure and though we do experience some loss we can assure you it is not outside of what a home aquarist/aquarium store/public aquarium would experience, it is unfortunately a part of any animal industry. What we can feel good about is the value and unmeasurable worth we can give to these animals lives, compared to their original destinations for example a home aquarium with limited resources and experience. We are able to teach and educate people about these animals and environment, promoting careers in Marine Biology and interest in conservation and protection of these animals and the oceans they live in! They are animal ambassadors for their species and bring joy and wonder to people all over who in turn are better educated and able to protect them.
Is it safe to touch all the animals?
All the animals in the tide pool are safe to interact with. They do not have the ability to sting, bite, or pinch.
How far do you travel?
We are based in Southern California. Our speicially equipped truck can safety transport the animals anywhere in the contiental United States, Canada, and Mexico. Pricing is based on a per mile calculation, plus travel accomidations for our sea life experts.
