To celebrate the end of our BEST SEASON YET, The DPA is inviting Campbell River to its annual release party!
On August 31st at 12:00PM, we will be meeting at the Discovery Passage Aquarium to begin transferring animals from their aquariums to buckets and totes for transfer.
Because of the specific habitats required by many of our animals, we will be splitting into three groups:
- One group will be headed to Willow Point Reef, to release our sea stars, shore crabs, and some intertidal fishes.
- The second group will be headed to Argonaut Wharf, at the base of Tyee Spit to release our deep water species.
- The third group will be releasing all of our fish species just on the beach beside the Discovery Passage Explorer Lab!
We will be seeking volunteers with vehicles to help shuttle people to each of our release sites. So let us know if you plan on attending, and if you have a vehicle!
