Clownfish Cove


Learn Through Play

Explore the brand new Clownfish Cove children’s area where children learn by play to wonder at and care for our oceans. Relocated to its original home in the  Canaccord Financial Exploration Gallery, this children’s area is targeted at kids ages eight and younger and features a new animal rescue centre, seaside dock with “underwater” tunnels to explore, touch table and reading nook. The fun, interactive, learning experiences of Clownfish Cove encourage a sense of responsibility regarding conservation in both children and caregivers. The goal is to help create caring kids—while they play.

Protect Marine Life With Us

Clownfish Cove fosters children’s connections to the natural world—all through exploration and play. By role-playing the part of a junior animal technician, getting close-up looks at local marine species and learning about the marine mammal rescue work we do, kids will start to understand the wonders of the marine world and why it’s important to help protect it.

Learn With Us

When children play, they develop their imagination and creativity, as well as their language, social and problem-solving skills. Clownfish Cove is designed to allow children to explore and build on their understanding of our world. The gallery also offers tips for caregivers to guide children through their explorations and play. Story Time and Family Programs are more structured ways for children to learn about the marine world around us.
