Pacific Biological Station Tour – June 20

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


The mystique and magic of our oceans has fascinated locals and scientists for centuries.  What goes on in our seas and throughout their depths is simply amazing, and hidden in Nanaimo is one of Canada’s leading research stations that opened its doors for us again this June – so we could continue our own investigations.

The Pacific Biological Station has been a key research centre for the west coast for more than 110 years.  It is one of the oldest centres of its kind in North America.  Scientists working with fish, whales, aquatic plants, water quality and everything right down to the micro-biotic level are being explored…. and incredible achievements are being made.

Here are some images from the tour on the 20th.  Another exciting, educational and fun day.

The station has also agreed to consider another tour for late October or November.
