Vancouver, B.C. – Raise a glass of suds in celebration of charismatic harbour seals, sea lions and fur seals – collectively known as pinnipeds – at a special edition After Hours at the Vancouver Aquarium®, an Ocean Wise® initiative. On Saturday, May 4, learn about these fascinating animals and their incredible rescue and rehabilitation stories through never-seen-before programs, all with a drink in hand.
Not only can guests explore the Aquarium’s galleries after dark – a truly magical place – they can also take in special programs, tailored for an adult audience. In a first for After Hours, head veterinarian Dr. Martin Haulena will share stories from the field as he recounts his experiences rescuing and rehabilitating seals suffering from gunshot wounds, disentangling sea lions from marine debris, and more. Through unique programs, guests can also learn about the rescue stories of endangered Green sea turtle Schoona, blind Calfornia sea lion Señor Cinco, and Northern resident killer whale Springer who was once separated from her pod but now reunited and thriving.
Get to know these incredibly resilient animals and learn their rescue stories while you enjoy a glass (or two) from ocean-minded breweries, cideries and wineries, including Arterra Wines, Lonetree, Moosehead Breweries Limited, Phillips Brewing & Malting Co., Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub, Tofino Brewing Co., Whistler Brewing Co. and others.
