Vancouver Aquarium Launches New Stellar Sea Lions Exhibit

Stellar Sea Lions

An exciting Canada Day announcement from the Vancouver Aquarium: Stellar Sea Lions are set to delight crowds with their mysterious and delightful personalities in a brand new exhibit.

With huge underwater viewing windows, guests will be find themselves immersed in the world of these ocean inhabitants. They will observe them glide and splash through the water, interact with one another, and bask in pleasant contentedness on rocks under the summer sun.


There is also a research station, which allows visitors to learn about and discover the world of these marine mammals. Guests will also learn about how the University of British Columbia is currently researching about why there has been a disappearance of 80 per cent of the wild Steller sea lion population

“The new Steller’s Bay exhibit is unlike anything we’ve ever offered, demonstrating our research program daily while inviting guests to get closer to these charismatic animals and connect with them like never before,” said Dolf DeJong, general manager of Vancouver Aquarium, an Ocean Wise initiative. “Not only will visitors see these magnificent Steller sea lions from a different perspective but our research-first approach will help create a newfound appreciation for sea lions, the challenges they face in the wild, and how Vancouver Aquarium is contributing to science-based conservation solutions.”

The Stellar Sea Lions Exhibit opened on Canada Day and is located in the Canada’s Wild Pacific outdoor gallery.
