Thanks to the generosity of Ocean Wise donors, Ocean Wise Education has a new bus to transport school groups to ocean education programs at the Vancouver Aquarium!
Trips on the 55-seater “Octobus” are FREE for school groups. This initiative aims to decrease the transportation barriers that currently make ocean literacy programming inaccessible to many schools.
There is a wide spectrum of economic stability within Metro Vancouver and this initiative helps to close the gap for those kids who otherwise would not be able to come and experience ocean literacy programs with Ocean Wise.
Keep your eyes open and you will see the brightly painted Octobus driving around Vancouver.
Teachers interested in organizing a field trip to the Vancouver Aquarium, or taking part in one of Ocean Wise’s School programs, can apply for free transportation on the Octobus at:
