Program Description & Details

The Arctic is one of the most extreme environments on the planet and home to a diversity of arctic survivalists who are adapted for these intense conditions. Join an Ocean Wise Educator at the Vancouver Aquarium to explore some of these incredible animals and the unique characteristics they have that enable them to survive and possibly thrive in the unique Arctic conditions. As the Arctic conditions change at an increasingly rapid rate, students will explore how these animals may be affected by the changing climate and how human actions have both a positive and negative impact on life all around the planet – even in the seemingly untouchable Arctic. 

 

The Virtual Aquaclass is an opportunity for students to connect live with a Vancouver Aquarium educator without having to leave the classroom.
