Belugas live in the Arctic and sub-Arctic waters of the world. They have an excellent sense of hearing; their ability to echolocate appears to be even better than that of a bottlenose dolphin.
Take in a beluga show, or visit them face-to-face in our underwater Arctic viewing area. Visit the Aquarium and explore over 50,000 aquatic creatures.
Since 1956, the Vancouver Aquarium has been advancing scientific research to help conserve our natural world.
There are seven Canadian beluga populations; four of which are endangered or threatened. The Vancouver Aquarium is involved in conservation initiatives which are striving to conserve belugas and other Arctic animals.
