Our expertise was called upon and we’ve opened our doors to a rescued sea otter pup who needed a permanent home.
The Vancouver Aquarium’s Marine Mammal Rescue Centre is a hospital for sick, injured or orphaned marine mammals. Each year, the Rescue Centre rescues over 100 marine mammals and rehabilitates them for release back into their natural habitat.
