Why Support Us?

The Alberni Aquarium and Stewardship Centre is an education initiative of the non-profit organization, West Coast Aquatic Stewardship Association. When you support us, you are supporting conservation, enhancement, habitat restoration, and education programs in the Alberni Valley. More information on the West Coast Aquatic Stewardship Association can be found here.

Your contribution helps us protect, restore, and create awareness of the complex ecosystems we depend on, as we want to do our best to make sure they are here for generations to come.

Looking for a way to become involved in the Alberni Valley? Why not become a Steward, and volunteer through our Aquarium? Whether you would prefer to help in the Aquarium itself, or get a little more adventurous and head outdoors (we've got plenty of projects!), we are always happy to have some extra help.
