As a not-for-profit community organization, the Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea connects the public with the Salish Sea Bioregion and its ecosystems through engagement, knowledge and awareness. This one-of-a-kind Centre offers an interactive, informative and hands-on experience with nature and culture through self-guided visits, daily programs, group and school bookings, and special events and lectures. It is the only year-round aquarium and cultural centre in Canada dedicated exclusively to the Salish Sea.
