Mission (Continued)

Operating seasonally (May-Oct), the North Coast Ecology Centre aims to engage local youth and families, seniors, and tourists with a sensory learning experience that will result in a lasting connection between local wildlife and marine environments and stewardship.

Redesign Rupert 2030, a community wide initiative launched in 2019, highlighted the desire of residents to gain access to the waterfront and we believe our project will be entirely complementary to this goal.  As part mini aquarium, our location on the waterfront is necessary and we believe that by creating this new public space, and ideally using existing infrastructure, we will be contributing directly to access.


 Beyond just an access point, the NCEC will be creating a connection to the water by showcasing and educating about marine species that many residents will never have had a chance to view or experience within Prince Rupert's current landscape.


The North Coast Ecology Centre Society aims to create a permanent education centre in Prince Rupert that highlights the region’s ecological richness.
