The tour is designed to help raise awareness of our connection with the ocean, showcasing a variety of creatures to those who do not have direct access to the sea, while also increasing awareness of the need to protect and conserve aquatic life.
The AquaVan will offer those in attendance a unique opportunity to interact with a variety of live invertebrate animals, including sea urchins, sea anemones, crabs, sea snails and sea stars.
The tour will also be informing those in attendance about the importance of conversation of the earth’s major bodies of water, with topics ranging from how pollution reaches the ocean, to the unforeseen effect humans have on earth.
Sunday, August 5, the AquaVan will be in Taylor, set up at the World Invitational Class “A” Gold Panning Championships, then will be in Dawson Creek Monday, August 6.
The exhibit will be open to all ages, and is free of charge to visit. For more information on the AquaVan, visit the campaign’s official website.
