June 15Join us June 15-17 for a splashy birthday party for E.T. the Pacific walrus!
E.T. the walrus is so big -- and such a superstar -- it will take 3 days to celebrate his birthday. E.T. is scheduled to come out in fun -- and very large -- form for his adoring fans, demonstrating various walrus behaviors on cue from the keepers who care for him.
There will be a big birthday cake (involving fish of some kind), a giant card for visitors to sign, and other birthday-themed activities.
