Gala raises $5800 for the Aquarium

The Christmas Gala hosted by the Ucluelet Chamber of Commerce and the Tofino Business Association raised over $18,000 in one amazing evening.

The Ucluelet Aquarium was not the only one getting a nice slice as a benificiary of the event. The Tonquin Foundation, the Food Bank and the Pacific Rim Visitors Centre also received part of the pie!

Big thanks to Marny Sauders for her work organizing the event.

Freedom for All!

As is tradition with the Ucluelet Aquarium, every animal is released back into the wild at the end of each operating year. If you are a fearless animal lover with a taste for crab pinches, slug slimings, paralyzing sea anemone stings*, and deadly snail attacks* please join us Saturday October 4 for our annual Specimen Release Party at the Aquarium.

Grab a bucket and follow us down Whiskey Dock to set the Aquarium's specimens free! The fun begins at 11:00 AM, so arrive early to choose your favourites.

* actual danger levels may vary
