|Not a bad fundraiser!|
A great souvenir for Gramma.
There have been protests. I was reluctant to visit, until Caitlin did some research:
The Vancouver Aquarium is the first and only in the world to commit to not capturing cetaceans from the wild for display. It made that commitment 18 years ago. Today, the facility cares for whales, dolphins and porpoises that were either born at the aquarium or rescued and deemed non-releasable by independent government authorities.
The Graham Amazon Gallery houses the tropical critters. I created a video of a few of them: the sloth in the tree, the monkeys grooming, as well as a goose atop a tree in the park.
There were some day care groups there, all descended on poor Isabelle and Caitlin, while Izzy was trying to sing her ABC song whilst washing her hands. (It's the rule!) It was somewhat overwhelming! Izzy adored the parrot.
