    Hi All,

    Happy to say I'm back on deck after my op! All went well, thanks for all the good vibes sent! At the aquarium today with a group. So need to catch up on all that's happened here.

    We have been worried since you have been out of touch and the second earthquake taking place. Someone remembered you were to have surgery and would not be around but it is a relief to hear from you. How did the aquarium fare after the second hit?

    Our aquarium is fine, we felt almost nothing, but the Christchurch aquarium is a loss. It was in the Square and the building is too damaged. The staff were allowed in for short times to maintain the gennys and feed the animals. They decided to evac, and got the Kiwis, Tuatara and some of the fish out and either taken to Orana park (sister institution, a game park) or released (the fish) but eventually it was deemed too dangerous to continue and the rest of the animals had to be euthanised- heartbreaking, they won't be reopening in the near future.
