Sea Waste Artwork:  See the Adélie penguin sculpture walking over sea trash. The sculpture is more than initially meets the eye – it’s made entirely out of recycled marine debris such as bottle caps, toothbrushes and even discarded toys, all recovered from oceans and waterways! The artwork was created by the nonprofit organization WashedAshore.org,

Final Note:  DAK has been mobbed in the early mornings because of Pandora.  It’s better to arrive at DAK mid- to late-morning, after 10am, to avoid long wait lines at the main entrance.
