Henry David Thoreau once said “we can never have enough of nature.” For the Aquarium Conservation Team, this is most certainly true of our work with our partners on behalf of the Atlantic white cedar. Listen in to find out why we’ve worked to plant nearly 40,000 of these special trees over the past ten years.

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.
