Ghost Anemones (Encore)

The National Aquarium

If you’ve ever peered into a tide pool and glimpsed an exotic, pulsing flower-like creature, you’ve probably seen a sea anemone. Found across the globe, these diverse and beautiful creatures aren’t plants, they’re colonizing animals, and they occur in nearly every marine habitat—tropical, temperate, shallow or deep. And they’re even here in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

This is a re-broadcast. 

As chief executive officer, John Racanelli leads a team of 600 full and part-time employees and 1,000 volunteers in pursuing the National Aquarium’s mission to inspire conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures. More than 1.5 million people annually visit the Aquarium’s venue in Baltimore, Maryland, while millions more are touched by the Aquarium’s education programs, outreach activities, social media campaigns and conservation initiatives.
