3 of 5 Ready to Rock and Roll
National Aquarium Animal Rescue returned Glockenspiel, a loggerhead turtle, to the Chesapeake Bay. Our team was alerted by a concerned couple, Herb Floyd and Rhonda Franz-Floyd, who spotted the turtle in the Bay. After nine months of medical treatments, mackerel and crustaceans, Glockenspiel made a full recovery.
4 of 5 Welcome to the Family
In June, three blue-headed pionus chicks joined the Aquarium family! Chris, Vera and Cal were born at the Aquarium and spent all summer growing up, nurtured by their parents and monitored by our team. The chicks fledged in September.
5 of 5 Honoring Duncan
With heavy hearts, we said goodbye to Duncan, our beloved resident map pufferfish at the Animal Care and Rescue Center. Duncan was a capable ambassador of the ocean world, and his nosy and food-driven personality captured the hearts of Aquarium staff and guests alike. He passed peacefully with his loving keepers and caretakers around him.
