Our mission at the Vancouver Aquarium is to conserve aquatic life through display and interpretation, education, research and direct action. As growth and progress continue to consume our natural resources more quickly than they can replenish, more species will face extinction. The Vancouver Aquarium is 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.
The Vancouver Aquarium is actively involved in transplanting new populations of rockfish along the shoreline of British Columbia, in an effort to reduce the devastating effect of overfishing on their population.
