The Vancouver Aquarium is Canada's largest aquarium, and a non-profit organization focused on conservation of aquatic life. The Aquarium conducts ground-breaking orca research through its Cetacean Research Lab. The Aquarium is also a partner in the B.C. Cetacean Sighting Network, and operates a very popular Adopt-A-Whale program.
in 2002, the Aquarium was a co-lead for the Springer project, and played a key role in the successful rehabilitation and release of the orphaned orca. The Aquarium conducts yearly updates to check on her continued progress.
