IS CEO JOHN NIGHTINGALE MAKING OVER 1 MILLION?


We the members, donors, tax payers and supporters of the Vancouver Aquarium demand the Vancouver Aquarium make public the salaries of CEO John Nightingale, VP Clint Wright, Head Veterinarian Martin Haulena and all Directors.


The Vancouver Aquarium is a non-profit organization that claims transparency, yet, they will not divulge salaries. An article dated August of 2000 states CEO John Nightingale said that he does not work directly for the aquarium, he is contracted through Vancouver Aquarium Management Ltd.


And why are they even allowed to hide salaries and contracts? When the aquarium was first formed in the 1950's, it was a non-profit society for a public aquarium but in 1994, only one year after CEO John Nightingale's arrival, it became a "private" non-profit. 


The aquarium has assisted the Shark Reef Aquarium, Beijing Aquarium and now managing L'Oceanografic in Spain but is our aquarium receiving all the money it's entitled to? Are some of the monies going to other entities?


There are serious concerns about contracts and upper management earning more than what the entire Marine Mammal Rescue Centre receives in yearly funding.


Please sign our petition demanding more honesty from our non-profit aquarium.
