The North Carolina Aquarium Society is the support organization for the three North Carolina Aquariums. The North Carolina Aquariums operate three facilities located on Roanoke Island, at Pine Knoll Shores, and at Fort Fisher. Established in 1986, the Society is dedicated to assisting these facilities in maintaining their high standards of exhibits, education and conservation programs. The Aquariums were established in 1976 to promote an awareness, understanding, appreciation, and conservation of the diverse natural and cultural resources associated with North Carolina’s ocean, estuaries, rivers, streams, and other aquatic environments. Last year, the North Carolina Aquariums educated over one million visitors.
