Video, Shark Cam, and Pacific Coral Reef Cam from the National Aquarium In Baltimore Maryland

I’ve recently discovered some of the amazing videos and video streams from the National Aquarium located in downtown Baltimore, Maryland.  Two of my favorites on their site are the “Blacktip Reef Live on SharkCam” and the “Pacific Coral Reef Cam“.  You can go either cam just about anytime and see what’s going on, as well as read about the different animals in the exhibit.  Currently, the Blacktip Reef exhibit has over 60 species and over 800 specimens and is 13,500 square feet in size .  I think it’s much better than having your own aquarium at home.  (In fact, I have one open on my second monitor as I write this – it’s mesmerizing).

They also have a really interesting video that shows a lot of the activities and events at the aquarium.  Check it out below.

The National Aquarium has been around for 30 years and attracts over 1.4 million visitors a year.  One of the aquariums big initiatives is the National Aquarium Animal Rescue program, which includes rescue, care and rehabilitation of marine mammals, turtles, seals  and other animals.  The also are highly involved in research and education.

I haven’t been to the National Aquarium yet, but based on what I’ve been reading on their website, it’s definitely on my list.
