New limited-edition face masks— featuring Joey!
Get yours before they sell out.
Do your part to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community and show your support for the Vancouver Aquarium with this stylish, non-medical face mask. With comfort in mind this high-performance reusable mask has been custom-designed and produced by the Vancouver Whitecaps FC (one of Vancouver Aquarium’s valued community partners) with proceeds going to support the Vancouver Aquarium and help care for our 70,000 animals during the COVID-19 closure.
Non-medical masks or face coverings, like ours, can be worn by members of the public when physical distancing is not possible in public settings (e.g., school, grocery shopping, in close settings such as public transit.)
Our new mask features rescued sea otter ‘Joey’ who has captured the hearts of people all over the world this summer. Joey was rescued by the Ocean Wise Marine Mammal Rescue Centre in July and has since come to live at the Vancouver Aquarium, an Ocean Wise initiative. Read more about Joey.

WHY THE VANCOUVER AQUARIUM NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT
Proceeds from the sale of every Vancouver Aquarium x Whitecaps FC facemask goes to animal care at the Vancouver Aquarium, an Ocean Wise initiative. The Vancouver Aquarium is a self-sustaining, not-for-profit organization and in response to one of the most financially challenging times in the Vancouver Aquarium’s 64-year history, Ocean Wise’s Board of Directors took the proactive decision to pause public programming at the Vancouver Aquarium as it was not financially viable to remain open.
Gift shop sales - including sales of the Vancouver Aquarium & Whitecaps FC facemasks - are enabling the Vancouver Aquarium to continue to provide our animals with the highest level of care during this closure. Thank you for your continued to support of the Vancouver Aquarium and Ocean Wise Conservation Association.
