Seattle Aquarium's harbor seal gets in the act


ALAN BERNER / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Siku, one of three resident harbor seals at the Seattle Aquarium, wanted to join the construction-worker portrait in the new habitat that she and two companions will occupy. The new habitat opens to the public June 1. Turner construction workers Baird Lehman, left, Aaron "Rambo" Weston, Robb Rankin and Ian Hamm pose with Siku. Siku, Barney and Q were relocated to the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Tacoma during the construction project. Their new pool has more than 30,000 gallons of water with seating for 100 around the glass panels. Harbor seals are native to Puget Sound and key players in the ecology.

This player was created in September 2012 to update the design of the embed player with chromeless buttons. It is used in all embedded video on The Seattle Times as well as outside sites.
