Learn about the sex lives of animals at Vancouver Aquarium's After Hours (CONTEST)

Feb 17 2017, 8:05 am

Vancouver Aquarium’s taking its animal education to the next level on March 16 with its next After Hours.

The adults-only event will feature exhibits that teach guests about the sex lives of animals. The intimate affair offers cocktails, beer, and wine for purchase while everyone enjoys a number of special experiences.

During the Vancouver Aquarium’s After Hours, guests can explore exhibits on their own and can:

  • Listen to a hissing cockroach’s mating call, learn how sharks can reproduce four different ways, and uncover why the ocean is sexy through talks from aquarists
  • Learn about reproduction underwater – from coral sex to otter love – from a special scientific presentation by a veterinarian
  • Catch a screening of the new, exhilarating 4-D film, Coastal Predators
  • Experience hands-on learning with marine invertebrates like sea stars, sea urchins, and more in the Wet Lab
