Aquarium Curator and Manager
Ricky is a long-time marine enthusiast, recently graduated from the University of Victoria. He has found a home for his passions at the Discovery Passage Aquarium, where he uses his skills as a freediver, biologist, and public speaker to foster literacy and appreciation for local sea life.
A big THANK YOU to all of our supporters and sponsors. Without your help, we would not be able to do all of the work that we do in our community. The Discovery Passage Aquarium is a non-profit society, registered as a charity with Revenue Canada (#801263484RR001) and we are happy to provide tax-deductible receipts for your donation or sponsorship.
We are currently hiring for Aquarium Interpreters & Explorer Lab Educators!
