    I was surprised that there was nothing on the blog about the Seahurst (pre seawall removal) Park animal rescue operation that took place on Monday August 19th. Dozens of volunteers from the Seattle Aquarium Beach Naturalist program, ESC Burien, and City of Burien moved thousands of animals from the soon to be disrupted intertidal area at the north end of the beach to safer locations at the south end. This is the second rescue operation at Seahurst, the first took place before the south end seawall was removed.
