With the leadership of passionate ocean ambassadors, the Aquarium has been able to turn the tides to help conserve our oceans and the aquatic life that depend on them. In this series we introduce you to some of these Ocean Wise ambassadors in Vancouver.

Why is Ocean Wise important to you?
As a native Vancouverite (fourth generation), the oceans have been imperative to my life and, now as a father to three young girls, I want to ensure they are there for future generations as well.
