About me

Gender Male
Occupation Marine Mammal Trainer
Location Boston, MA, United States
Introduction My name is Justin and I am a marine mammal trainer at the New England Aquarium. I've been a trainer since 2007. I didn't always want to be a marine mammal trainer. I started off developing and running environmental education programs in South Africa's Kruger Park, and then at the NEAq. My skills as an educator as well as my degree in biology and psychology ended up being a good combination for training. We love sharing our animals with people who visit the Aquarium, so we're really excited to be able to share them now "electronically" through this blog.
