Share Incredible Knowledge

Learn Amazing Things

Regardless of age, you can always learn new, incredible things about the life that exists around us. We at the Vancouver Aquarium, an Ocean Wise ® initiative, are continuously learning new things through our conservation programs and research studies, and we share this knowledge throughout our facility and online. Explore our AquaFacts to find facts you never knew, take a deeper look at Canada’s Arctic through our online exhibits, or visit the Aquarium through a class field trip.

We develop curriculum-based resources to support Aquarium field trips, and to accompany our Ocean Wise and Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup programs. We also provide professional development opportunities for teachers and teachers in training.
