This Saturday, June 8, join the Vancouver Aquarium and WWF-Canada in celebrating World Oceans Day at the Aquarium. We rely on our oceans in many areas of our lives, including climate control, food, transportation and countless other basic necessities. Join us on this special day to learn how you can help protect our oceans.
From 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., guests can enjoy activity tables, games, a beach walk, a World Oceans Day birthday cake and much more. Vancouver Aquarium’s Bee Bop and the WWF Pandy will make special guest appearances, and our Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup and the Aquarium’s Ocean Wise teams will be leading fun and informative activities.
