African penguins (Spheniscus demersus) are endangered. North American zoos and aquariums, including the Vancouver Aquarium, are on a mission to save them. All the penguins at the Vancouver Aquarium are bred through the Species Survival Plan program, led by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). You can help, too! Visit the Penguin Point exhibit to find out how.
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.
