Aquarist Mark Olson gets top marks!

SkyOlsonMark Olson has just been certified as a Level 3 Life Support Operator – the highest level of certification – by the Aquatic Animal Life Support Operators, the sole certification organization among professionals addressing animal care facilities, Zoological parks and Aquariums.  He is among less than 20 such certified Level 3 Operators in the world.  This certification makes him qualified to operate any world class facility at the highest level of management. – – News flash written by Mr. Robert Anderson, aquarist and recently facilities manager at the Seattle Aquarium.
The Reserve is super proud to have Mark as our Facilities Coordinator during the entire existence of the Reserve site, designated in 1980. Along the way Mark has seen his 2 daughters grow into young adults.  His first born, is shown here years & years ago gazing into the former aquarium tanks.  The new aquarium room gets raves on a daily basis!  It is indeed a little jewel within the Breazeale Interpretive Center.  We are very, very proud of Mark Olson our colleague and friend.
