When it comes to climate change, what will happen if the human race simply does nothing and continues down our current path? Unfortunately it's not good, and some of the first effects of that indifference will be felt right here in Maryland starting with the phenomenon of sea level rise. 

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.
