Event Details

Explore how copper contamination impacted the marine food chain from plankton to predators, and learn how remediation efforts now protect this ecosystem.

This unique display includes specimens from the Howe Sound ecosystem, including a real killer whale skeleton!

In August 1997, the Strawberry Isle Marine Research Society found a deceased killer whale off the coast of Tofino, BC and with the help of the community brought her back to shore. The Society cleaned and preserved her bones and built it into a travelling killer whale education display to inspire and educate people about marine conservation.

Other specimens include preserved rockfish, salmon, sponges and other iconic animals that call Howe Sound home.
