Take action with us. A sanctuary in the heart of Stanley Park, 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. Our staff and volunteers have been involved in the creation of Canada's first no-take marine protected area, as well as wetlands restoration and beach clean-ups. They do wildlife rescue and rehabilitations, and population surveys of marine mammals and intertidal fishes. You can help us ensure that our oceans stay healthy by joining us on any of our initiatives.
