Did you know? Blacktip Reef is home to three wobbegong sharks! Their wide, flat bodies and fringed mouths help to perfectly conceal these sharks within the reef structure.

Our mission: to inspire conservation of the world's aquatic treasures!
Introduction
National Aquarium is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to inspire conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures. The National Aquarium protects and preserves this blue planet and all of its animal and habitats through its engaging living collections in our ground-breaking Baltimore attraction; our science-based education programs and our hands-on experiences in the field from the Chesapeake Bay to Costa Rica; and partnerships and alliances with like-minded organizations around the world.
