Where your money goes

Canada is warming on average at a rate twice as fast as the world. The consequences of global warming are evident and are projected to intensify in the future. In Canada, these effects include more extreme heat, less extreme cold, longer growing seasons, shorter snow and ice cover seasons, thinning glaciers, thawing permafrost, and rising sea levels.

Funds raised at the Ocean Wise Gala will support conservation activities to protect Canada’s Arctic, including a brand-new, soon-to-open, multi-sensory digital exhibit at the Vancouver Aquarium. Ocean Wise believes that everyone can play a role in a sustainable future. By bringing the Arctic closer to us, Ocean Wise can empower the change needed to protect our ocean and to mitigate the worst impacts of climate change.
