The Aquarium Society of Alberta (o/a Alberta Aquarium) is developing a public conservation, education and research facility centred on water and aquatic ecosystems. Based in Edmonton, this community-based project looks to support public education in the critically important area of earth's aquatic ecosystems.
Founded in 2014, the Aquarium is a volunteer organisation, in its early stages of development. A dedicated group of passionate individuals has dedicated many hours in building the concept and plans, creating an incredible vision for the Capital Region of Alberta and for the Province itself.
The focus on water as one of critical our life-sustaining resources has become increasingly important in the face of population pressures, climate change impacts, and pollution. Based in the largest agricultural centre of Canada, the people of the Prairies are intimately tied to the heartbeat of our water cycle.
Learning the story of water, from local waters to distant seas, and how they are interconnected is part of the focus. Incorporating these lessons and studies into schools and general public education is another part of the mission. Independent research facilities create opportunities for contributions on a global scale.
The Alberta Aquarium brings a unique opportunity to create a facility of environmental relevance, of extended education, of economic impact, and of personal involvement surrounding a life-critical resource that touches every aspect of life on earth.
