This vet stuffy is inspired by our own Dr. Martin Haulena.
Dr. Haulena was inspired to become a veterinarian after meeting a dolphin at an aquarium when he was 7 years old. He now cares for all the animals at the Aquarium as well as Canada's only Marine Mammal Rescue Centre, which rescues, rehabilitates and releases more than 100 marine mammals every year.
The Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Center, an Ocean Wise Initiative, is a non-profit society dedicated to the conservation of aquatic life.
This stuffy is plastic free.Many stuffed animals contain pouches of plastic beads (nurdles), the same ones we find on shorelines, and in the ocean; that’s why we’ve eliminated these pouches, and only offer nurdle-free hugs! We even hand sew our hang tags and use fabric for hanging rather than using the small plastic hook tags.
Your purchase directly supports our efforts to protect our oceans.
