The National Aquarium in Baltimore is a world-class aquatic institution dedicated to environmental education and stewardship. Its more than 14,000 animals represent more than 650 species of fishes, birds, amphibians, reptiles and marine mammals that live in award-winning, recreated habitats representing unique locations worldwide. Aquarium visitors journey from the top of the rainforest to the depths of the ocean to explore the magical connection between water and all living things.

The Weinberg Waterfront Park is a distinctive plaza that welcomes visitors to the Aquarium and Inner Harbor. It provides a relaxing and educational setting that explores Maryland’s diverse ecosystems – from the ocean, coastal plains and Chesapeake Bay, through the Piedmont region and west to the Allegheny mountains.

Animal Planet Australia: Wild Extremes is a new exhibit that depicts a typical northern Australia river gorge. It is home to 1,800 individual native animals representing 120 species, including freshwater crocodiles, turtles, fishes, free-flying birds and flying foxes. This slice of Australia in Baltimore offers visitors a truly immersive experience: walking through the bottom of the gorge they come nose to nose with free-roaming lizards basking on rocky cliffs, see colorful birds swooping and squawking overhead, perhaps feel a squirt of water as an archer fish hunts for its food, view flying foxes hanging from cliff-side trees and appreciate the thick acrylic that separates them from the freshwater crocodiles and venomous death adder snakes.
