Article Index

Blacktip Reef WebThe National Aquarium in Baltimore's newest exhibit, Blacktip Reef, will not be ready for a complete opening on July 10 as originally scheduled.

"The process of opening an exhibit with a living collection is largely guided by the needs of the animals," explained John Racanelli, aquarium CEO. "Though we had planned to open the exhibit officially on July 10, we've decided to give the 1,200 residents of Blacktip Reef more time to acclimate to their new home. Our dedicated team is working hard to create an exhibit that both inspires our visitors and meets our high standards of excellence in animal care."
