Program: Education on Marine Life/Traveling Outreach Program

Budget:
$31,788,422
Category:
Animal-Related
Population Served:
Children and Youth (infants - 19 years.)

Program Description:

The Aquarium's Conservation Education programs are designed to reach a variety of audiences. Over 220,000 students and teachers participate in on-site programs annually; 70,000 to 90,000 more participate in our outreach programs. Educational publications, such as our interdisciplinary middle school curriculum, Living in Water, reach an international audience. Conservation programs are integrated based on three critical areas: Ocean Health, the Chesapeake Bay, and Global Biodiversity. Programs and projects include: Marine Animal Rescue Program (MARP). MARP's primary function is to rescue stranded marine animals in emergency situations, provide extensive rehabilitation and, if possible, release the animals back into the wild. To date, the program has rescued 49 pinnipeds (seals, walruses, and sea lions), 29 sea turtles, 31 cetaceans, and one Florida manatee. MARP has been able to successfully return 28 of these animals back into the wild. Captive Breeding Programs: Captive breeding programs such as these help protect threatened species and eliminate some of the need to collect wild specimens. Sixteen species of rain forest birds have been successfully bred at the Aquarium. We were also the first US zoo or aquarium to breed the rare blue poison dart frog (Dendrobates azureus). Regional Conservation Efforts: Because the tidal wetlands of the Chesapeake Bay region in which the Aquarium is located are vital filters of pollutants and habitat sources for numerous species of plants and animals, the Aquarium is currently involved in community-based projects to restore regional habitats and to create an educated and trained volunteer base to encourage widespread conservation activities.

Program Long-Term Success:

In 2007, 415 volunteers contributed 1,195 hours to remove more than 45,574 pieces of debris from the wetlands at Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine in Baltimore. The Aquarium partners with the National Park Service and receives support from the Maryland Port Administration, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Steinweg Baltmore, Inc., and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for these events. These clean-up days have an immediate impact on the environments of Baltimore City and the Chesapeake Bay.

Evidence of Impact

There are no summaries available for this organization.

Like NVADG above, Bay Area DART is a locally-based animal disaster group that is making a big impact in setting an example on how involved and impactful these groups can be. When they’re not doing training or participating in a disaster response (whether it’s one at home or in another area), Bay Area DART also helps with cruelty cases and even rescued dogs from Puerto Rico.
