Love them or fear them, sharks play an important part in our ocean eco-system. Shark Week is an opportunity to learn all about the many species of sharks and their role in the ocean – and how we can protect them.
Learn what’s fact and what’s fiction when it comes to these jaw-some creatures. Every day throughout the week, our experts will be speaking about all things shark; are all sharks dangerous? Are shark attacks increasing? Do sharks have predators? Now’s your chance to find out.
Ever wanted to see a shark chow-down? Witness a shark feed, every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 2.30pm in our Tropics Gallery.
Your very own baby sharks will love the shark-themed puppet show at 10.45am daily.
Keep Shark Week going all year long by taking home a shark stuffie, t-shirt or mug from our giftshop.
You can even symbolically adopt a shark by picking up a Shark Aquadopt Kit – which support the care and feeding of the animals at the Vancouver Aquarium, as well as Ocean Wise’s conservation, research and education initiatives.
This summer, the Vancouver Aquarium has extended its opening hours and is now open from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.
