inspiring tomorrow's leaders and empowering communities

The National Aquarium is a nonprofit organization changing the way humanity cares for our ocean planet. Through unparalleled exhibits, science-based education programs and hands-on field initiatives, we are creating a community of hopeful conservationists, driven by our mission to inspire conservation of the world's aquatic treasures. Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic—which impacted every facet of our operations throughout 2020 and temporarily shuttered the Aquarium to guests for an unprecedented 109 days from March to July—we are proud of what we accomplished this year to benefit people, animals and the planet.

"Giving each and every animal at the National Aquarium the best care possible every single day to ensure each one experiences great welfare is what drives our team. It's why we're here—on typical days as well as on not-so-typical days like those we saw in 2020." Stephanie Allard, vice president of animal care and welfare, National Aquarium

"When I was a freshman just joining the Aquarium, I didn't know really anything about the sea. Now, three years later, I'm actively trying to find ways to learn more about the animals, culture and mystery of the ocean, which has also led me to want to become a marine biologist and continue in this field during college." Akil Smith, 11th grader, Archbishop Curley High School; participant, Henry Hall Fellowship

"The National Aquarium's partnership in Jonestown began before the Animal Care and Rescue Center even started to be built. There was clear back and forth communication with the community about what would be going on, and they promised to stay engaged with the community once the ACRC was open—which they have. Conservation Community Coordinator Amber Doherty's dedication to Jonestown is genuine. Amber and the Aquarium are true partners." Malik Jordon, president, Historic Jonestown Incorporated
