Last weekend, Sprout & I were lucky enough to participate in a tour of the Aquarium with a group of other bloggers & their kids. We touched sea stars, urchins & anemones, saw electric eels helping light up a gorgeous origami jelly fish display--here as part of the Luminescence exhibit until January 22nd & got to meet Scuba Claus. Did you know that Santa could swim?

Besides getting to go to the Aquarium whenever you want--being able to just drop in for an hour without having to stay longer to make the visit 'worth it' is a boon with small children--membership benefits also include supporting aquatic life by helping to fund programs like the Great Canadian Shoreline Clean-up, Oceanwise & the Marine Mammal Rescue Centre; express entry; exclusive invitation to members' events; & special discounts to Vancouver Aquarium members at participating Oceanwise restaurants from November 1 to January 31.

Nothing says “best gift ever” like a caribou!
Starting at just $40, Gifts of Canadian Nature help protect habitat for Canada’s native wildlife. A Gift of Canadian Nature lasts for years to come and is a gift that gives thrice! Once to the recipient with a personalized certificate and a beautiful calendar, once to the giver with a charitable tax receipt, and once to Canadian wildlife. This year we are featuring the snowy owl, the grizzly bear, the caribou, the gray fox and the Canada lynx. Click the image or follow this link for more information.
