Summer Wet Lab Experience
These Wet Lab programs are a great way to engage your group, inspire curiosity and instill a sense of respect for all ocean life and its environment! This is a unique hands-on experience where your students will interact with and learn about live tidal pool sea animals from local B.C. waters and gain a first-hand insight into the inner workings of intertidal marine life. Through an inquiry approach, your group will be encouraged to explore the adaptations these animals have to thrive in their specific habitat, and what selective pressures exist in those habitats that have helped to shape these adaptations.
In this program, you will:
• Handle live animals that live in BC waters.
• Explore the adaptations these animals have to thrive in their specific habitats and ecosystems.
• Learn about a variety of local marine habitats and ecosystems and the influences that affect the health and the survival of the communities of life that they contain.
• Understand the complex conservation issues that affect our local aquatic ecosystems and around the world!
The Vancouver Aquarium will be temporarily closed to the public starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020 and all programming will be cancelled as a preventative measure to help stop the spread of COVID-19 through our community. Learn more.
