NC Aquarium Society Unveils New Website

On Friday, September 16, the NC Aquarium Society announced that it had upgraded to a new website. You can view their new website at

In case you didn’t know, in 1986, the North Carolina Aquarium Society was formed as a nonprofit (501c3) support organization to assist the Aquariums in the fulfillment of their mission. Through a Memorandum of Agreement with the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources (NCDNCR), 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.

The aquarium on Roanoke Island is one of three state-run aquariums in North Carolina. Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head is also run by the State of North Carolina.
