Pacific Poke, a partner of Ocean Wise, is selling 60 ml containers of sanitizer for four dollars each. 

“Dong Lam and I grew up here, and like many locals the Vancouver Aquarium has been a special place for us and our families over the years and they’ve taught us a lot about sustainability,” said Pacific Poke co-founder Michael Tran.

The aquarium had recently applied for emergency funding, as the marine organization has lost millions of dollars, since closing in March.

Vancouver Whitecaps are also lending a helping hand, through selling face masks. All proceeds go toward the Stanley Park facility, as well.
