Vancouver’s Front Yard
The Strait of Georgia, which lies between the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island, is a busy passageway for boats and ferries. But many of the people who cross this body of water don’t know about the incredible diversity of marine life that lives under the surface. The Strait of Georgia exhibit represents some of that diversity. It holds 260,000 litres of water—enough to fill over 2,500 standard-sized bathtubs—and is home to hovering rockfish, elusive wolf-eels, colourful seastars and many other animals.
