The North Carolina Estuarium educates schoolchildren across North Carolina and visitors from around the globe about aquatic life in the Albemarle-Pamlico estuarine system. Its curriculum includes interactive exhibits, topics such as the biology of the blue crab and a lesson in sculpture, pictured, showing how the food chain works. This miracle on many levels has been possible since 1998 through the collaboration of donors, volunteers, elected officials, board members, and the parent organization Partnership for the Sounds.
