Thursday was members night at the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk and "Captain Living Sound" arrived with a challenge just in time for the preview of live moon jellyfish exhibit, which opens to the public on Saturday, Jan. 18.

"Captain Living Sound," took a moment to greet Sharky, his trusted partner in fighting crime, which in their case is pollution, and stayed busy spreading his message of conservation among the future stewards of Long Island Sound. 

And while other super heroes travel with holsters and weapons, Captain Living Sound's belt is trimmed with compartments for his Sound Steward pledge cards for children.
