Kudos to our president and CEO, Dr. John Nightingale, for receiving the District of West Vancouver’s Environmental Community Achievement Award for establishing environmental stewardship programs. The honour recognizes an individual who promotes environment awareness through leading and coordinating events, initiatives and programs.
Dr. Nightingale has been at the helm of the Vancouver Aquarium for the past 17 years. During this time, he has guided the expansion of the Aquarium’s leadership in conservation and research while focusing operations on sustainability. A professional biologist and public educator, Dr. Nightingale has been responsible for the development and operation of some of the world’s best aquariums. His background and lifelong work in public communications, and in formal and informal public education, make him a leader in the current development of new conservation efforts in aquariums, zoos and museums.
Congratulations to Dr. Nightingale and thanks for your immense dedication to our conservation efforts.
