THANK YOU!  We are grateful to the citizens of Baltimore for voting YES to Question L in the recent election.baltimore-waterfront-small Your support allows the Aquarium to receive $500,000 for major upgrades to the water systems that maintain habitats for the 16,000 animals that call the Aquarium home. This new state-of-the-art life support system will replace the original that remains from 1981, and will make the Aquarium’s 28 year-old building more energy efficient. Support like this makes all the difference. We take pride in knowing that the citizens of Baltimore continue to support the National Aquarium!
