The National Aquarium in Baltimore, Md., engages visitors, volunteers, students and citizens from around the world in the preservation of natural resources and living systems. Its newest exhibit, “Living Seashore,” focuses entirely on the Mid-Atlantic seashore, giving guests the opportunity to get face-to-face with a wide range of local sea creatures. Visitors to the exhibit also learn how to preserve these creatures for future generations.
As a nonprofit organization, the National Aquarium could not accomplish its mission without support from dedicated partners like Bank of America. A participant in the Aquarium’s Corporate Advantage membership program at the Managing Partner level, the bank’s employees and clients enjoy special admission benefits, behind-the-scenes access and team-building volunteer opportunities.
Additionally, Bank of America provides annual philanthropic support of the Aquarium’s work, which includes restoration of Chesapeake Bay wetlands, education of more than 100,000 Maryland school children – both at the Aquarium and in the classroom – and other conservation and education initiatives. Bank of America contributions have also helped sustain affordable access programs that ensure nearly 400,000 Marylanders are able to visit the Aquarium each year and currently help to support the Aquarium on Wheels youth education and job skills program.
For three decades now, the National Aquarium has served as an economic and cultural beacon for the city and the region. It has maintained deep ties to the local community since it was conceived in the 1970s.
