Did you know that overfishing is one of the greatest threats to our oceans today? An estimated 90 per cent of all large fish are already gone from the world’s oceans. Although overfishing is a serious issue, it is one that you can help reverse. This World’s Oceans Day on June 8, 2012, you can take part in efforts of the Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program – a national conservation initiative committed to educating and empowering consumers about the issues surrounding sustainable seafood – to raise support for our oceans.
On June 8, join Ocean Wise and SeaChoice for a beluga-inspired yoga adventure from 8 -10 a.m. in the underwater beluga whale viewing area of the Aquarium. Refresh your body and mind with an invigorating yoga workshop led by yogi, ocean lover, and blissologist Eoin Finn while majestic white belugas swim in the background. Enjoy a healthy breakfast provided by Choices Markets, as well as global hip-hop and organic beats from DJ Tspoon (Delhi 2 Dublin), Rupinder Sidhu (Banyen Roots), and Ndidi Cascade. Tickets are $50 each and can be purchased here. All funds directly support Ocean Wise and SeaChoice.
