Collinsville High School graduate, Emily Wright, has spent 2 days a week this
summer as an unpaid intern at the Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks. Emily has occasionally
been "on display" along with the fish in the "Coral Reef"
exhibit as she dives to help feed individual fish and clean the inside of their
tanks. Most of her time has been spent learning/helping the biology staff maintain
the equipment, water chemistry/level/temperature, and preparing food for the
warm water fish.
Wright is seen (above) hand feeding fish in this tank.
of the more "entertaining" parts of the dives into the "Coral
Reefs" tanks is dealing with the selfish puffer fish who thinks all the
food belongs to him. On this particular dive (above) he stole all the food Emily
had tried to feed to the eel.
also took 6 hours at Tulsa Community College this summer while home from college
at Coral Gables.
