Presented by the Vancouver Aquarium and Royal Ontario Museum.
The Canada’s Oceans and You Symposium represents an opportunity for world-leading
experts to come together to share stories and research findings with each other and the public in an open and safe environment at the ROM. Canada has more coast-line than any other country in world yet less than 1% of this marine habitat is protected. Canada is a major contributor to the scientific understanding of our global oceans, but rarely are these scientists provided a platform to share their stories within the public sphere. With partners from the Vancouver Aquarium, the ROM will provide this platform, and bring together artists, scientists, educators and policy makers under one banner: our fragile oceans.
Program also features a screening of Revolution the new film by award-winning filmmaker Rob Stewart (Sharkwater), presented Friday Nov 16th, 5:30 - 8 pm, before admission to the ROM’s exciting new Friday Night Live adult program.
