Check out this website for information on a new proposed ocean themed center, right here in our own backyard. We’re thrilled to be partnering with the Nanaimo Deep Discovery Association (NDDA) in their mission to have the new facility built in downtown Nanaimo. 

The Ocean Discovery Centre will be a community-gathering place that articulates the story of the evolution of deep sea exploration and technology that has been developed in British Columbia. The team has recently taken a major step forward, receiving city council voting in favour of the project in principal. NDDA is now working on a new business plan, laying out the framework for the center and demonstrating the benefits to the community, local First Nations, and marine-focused education.

We encourage everyone to lend their support to this exciting new initiative, by signing up to receive updates from NDDA here. And we’re looking forward to donating some Inuktun developed camera equipment to the centre – for some future #InuktunInTheWild sightings!
