National Aquarium staff are involved in a wide range of research studies, and this winter, members of National Aquarium Animal Rescue helped gather data for a multiyear study of grey seals in Massachusetts that has an interesting tie to human health.

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.
