Come Celebrate With Us

Come down to the Vancouver Aquarium from September 24 – 30 and celebrate Sea Otter Awareness Week with us and see your favourite, furry friends in person.

We’ll be highlighting these oh-so-adorable critters all week long with fun and engaging “otter-themed” programs. Don’t miss the daily feeds with the animal trainers, the hilarious sea otter puppet show and the educational “Life in a Kelp Forest” talk at the Strait of Georgia exhibit. You’ll learn the story of kelp forests and the sea otter’s important role in maintaining these precious habitats.
