About the Open Water Research Station program: Since 1993, researchers at the University of British Columbia’s Marine Mammal Research Unit have partnered with the Vancouver Aquarium to study the mysterious decline of the Steller sea lion population in the North Pacific. This is an ambitious project to discover the reasons behind the mysterious disappearance of 80 percent of the world’s Steller sea lions and what it could mean for the ocean ecosystem.

The Vancouver Aquarium is a non-profit society dedicated to the conservation of aquatic life.

The University of British Columbia is one of Canada’s leading research universities and is consistently ranked among the top 40 in the world. The university attracts 54,000 students from across Canada and 140 countries around the world.
