Testing the Waters

Featured Photo

Area teens participating in the Biologists in Training program this summer have been learning about all aspects of animal care at the North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island. Their most recent task was water quality monitoring, a process where water samples from each aquatic exhibit are tested for ammonia, nitrites and nitrates. Program leaders Kate Davison, second from left, and Leslie Vegas guided participants through the tests, which are important to maintaining the health and well-being of the animals in the care of the aquarium.
