JUNE 22nd

Sturgeon Survival!

This month we’re headed underwater to learn more about the largest fish that inhabit the Fraser River – white sturgeon! Known as the ‘Ghosts of the Fraser’, these elusive fish can live for decades and grow over six metres long. They face many challenges before they reach adulthood, from hungry river otters to water pollution and climate change.

WHAT: 

  • Learn how the white sturgeon is so well-adapted for survival in the murky waters of the Fraser River.   
  • Discover the sturgeon lifecycle. From tiny egg to giant fish – real samples of sturgeon included!   
  • Face the dangers of the Fraser as a sturgeon in our survival board game.
