Featured Exhibit: Orcas: Our Shared Future

April 16, 2021 until February 27, 2022
Dive deep into the stories and science that surround the magnificent Orca, spirit of BC's wild coast and apex predator of all oceans. Follow the currents of ecological activism, popular culture and Indigenous beliefs to gain a new appreciation of these sophisticated animals, long feared in Western cultures as killer whales. Discover the complex social structure of Orca society and reflect on the surprising consequences of captivity.

Learn which Orca populations are thriving and which are at risk, and surface with a new understanding of how Orcas and humans are inextricably connected: we are all part of nature, not apart from nature.
