Vancouver is known to have some of the best underwater wildlife in the world, the only problem is that the waters off the coast can be rather chilly. The Vancouver Aquarium has solved that problem and brought some of British Columbia's most interesting sea creatures inside to inspire and educate visitors. The Vancouver Aquarium is a non-profit organization and they partake in worldwide marine mammal rescue and rehabilitation projects. When inside the Aquarium, step into the Rainforest where you will be greeted by a Sloth, tropical birds, crocodiles, snakes and fish. Then, mosey on over to the display of fish that call British Columbia home. Make sure that you go outside and watch the Sea Otters goof around and catch one of the many shows that include Dolphins, Beluga Whales and Sea Lions.
