Straws hurt wildlife. But relax because we don’t use them. We have many onsite single-use plastic elimination programs and support research that reduce plastic pollution.
Our Gift Shop offers fun and memorable aquatic-themed gifts for all ages. We carry a wide range of sustainable products as well as items crafted from B.C. and Canadian artists.
Vancouver’s Water is Better on Tap. We only offer Vancouver’s tap water at the Aquarium – it comes filtered, fresh from the mountains, and is safe to drink. You’ll find dispensers throughout the building – enjoy!
Serving it to you warm, while keeping our kitchen cool. Our kitchen appliances are connected to an energy-efficient exchange loop that redistributes heat throughout the building. We save energy by using the heat already produced in our café to warm galleries like the Amazon.
We only serve shade grown, organic coffee. Buying shade grown ensures our coffee grows under the shade of the rainforest canopy, preventing deforestation, and protecting animals like our Goeldi Monkeys.
All dishware and food waste is composted, and turned into Class A compost that is used to grow certified organic alfalfa and hops in the Lower Mainland.
We only feed our guests sustainable seafood to ensure that our seafood is harvested in a method that ensures limited bycatch on non-target and endangered species, and that populations are abundant and resilient.
