Andy Goldfarb, a staff biologist at the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, plays with one of the four clouded leopard cubs currently at the zoo June 5, 2015, in Tacoma, Wash. This sweet photo was made by former SR colleague Ingrid Barrentine. So great to see her work featured.

Tacoma aquarium offers dive with sharks

TACOMA – Sharks might have a bad rap with some people but officials at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium insist it’s the sharks that usually face danger when they cross paths with humans. Hoping to shift public perception, the Tacoma zoo is debuting an attraction where people can swim with the sharks in the South Pacific Aquarium’s 240,000-gallon saltwater tank. The idea is to offer a fun experience that also will spark interest and awareness.
