From sea otters to seal pups to false killer whales, our Marine Mammal Rescue Centre, presented by Port Metro, rescues and rehabilitates hundreds of marine animals each and every year. The ability to care for these sick and stranded animals is made possible through donations, volunteers who donate their time and through proceeds from admissions to the Vancouver Aquarium.
Thanks to the Aviva Community Fund, there is now another way you can help donate to our Rescue Centre and fund a much needed digital-ray machine for our emergency operating room by voting for us online. It’s as easy as following these three steps:
Step 1: Visit www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf19922
Step 2: Sign up with email or Facebook
Step 3: Vote!
Each stage of voting takes place over 15 days and you are invited to vote for us each day of the competition to help us secure our spot in the next round. Better yet, share the competition details with your family and friends on Facebook and Twitter to help us spread the word even farther.
If the Vancouver Aquarium is voted through to the final stage of the competition and is chosen as a finalist, Aviva Insurance will assist us with purchasing new veterinary equipment including a digital x-ray machine that would help us assess critical care cases faster and with less stress on the animal.
Follow us on Twitter for updates and reminders on this unique online competition. We’ll be posting reminders on our social media channels using #AvivaCF
