The New York Aquarium is part of the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS). WCS saves wildlife and wild lands through careful science, international conservation, education, and the management of the world???s largest system of urban wildlife parks, led by their flagships the Bronx Zoo and the New York Aquarium. Together, these activities change individual attitudes toward nature and help people imagine wildlife and humans living in sustainable interaction on both a local and a global scale. WCS is committed to this work because we believe it essential to the integrity of life on Earth. The Aquarium is strives to bring the largest possible audience into contact with nature, providing memorable experiences that effectively build understanding of the importance, value, and sensitivity of aquatic species and habitats, and to effectively empower people to become personally involved in protecting marine and freshwater resources for future generations.
