The Vancouver Aquarium, an Ocean Wise ® initiative, is home to thousands of incredible ocean species and amazing aquatic life. It’s also Ocean Wise headquarters, where our scientists, educators and conservation experts do their work, not only to protect our oceans but to inspire others to join us in our mission.
As growth and progress continue to consume our natural resources more quickly than they can replenish, more species will face extinction. We are tackling global conservation issues with a focus on encouraging Canadians to take an active role to help our natural world stay healthy and abundant.
The B.C. Wild Killer Whale Adoption Program and the B.C. Cetacean Sightings Network are two of the ways individuals can significantly contribute to more than 25 years of critical research of these majestic mammals.
