NC Aquarium Society: Past & Future of NC Aquariums

April 23, 2024 -- The Rotary Club of the Capital City was pleased to welcome Liz Baird, President and CEO of the North Carolina Aquarium Society. Liz shared with the club the role of the North Carolina Aquarium Society as a nonprofit support organization to assist the North Carolina Aquariums in the fulfillment of their mission.

The Society partners with the Aquariums to raise private funds to make them better—by supporting their priorities of new exhibits, animals, education programs and conservation initiatives.

North Carolina Aquariums facilities at Fort Fisher, Pine Knoll Shores, Roanoke Island and Jennette’s Pier rank among the state’s twenty most-visited attractions, and their combined annual visitation of over 1.3 million tops the list. They are valuable assets to the state for their broad educational impact, their work as environmental stewards, and their significant role in driving the state’s $20-plus billion tourism economy.
