Since the National Aquarium opened its doors in August 1981, it has been a proud partner in the renaissance of Baltimore and our iconic Inner Harbor. What began as a visitor attraction with a budding conservation program has evolved into a conservation organization that operates a world-class aquarium in carrying out its mission.
The Aquarium, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, relies on donors and members (individuals as well as corporate) to carry out its conservation work, which focuses on three primary priorities—urban conservation and diversity, ocean and human health, and climate change. This includes engaging local students in conservation education, restoring wetland habitats at Fort McHenry and throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed, reducing plastic pollution in the ocean worldwide, and much more.
Corporate members support this critical work while accessing Aquarium admission and other benefits for their company and clients. To learn more, visit aqua.org/corporate, or contact Stephanie Chall.
