Over nearly three decades with the National Aquarium in Baltimore, David Pittenger has been credited with helping steer the institution from a tourist attraction to an institution that strives to be a voice for environmental stewardship. On Tuesday, Pittenger announced that he plans to step down after 15 years as executive director and more than 25 years at the aquarium altogether, triggering a nationwide search to find his replacement. During his tenure, Pittenger introduced visitors to the wonders of Australia's Outback and is helping to lead the push for a swimmable and fishable Inner Harbor.

After a while, it begins to chip, and you have to repair it. That's what we're looking at doing."

The continent of Australia is about as far from Maryland as one can get without leaving Earth altogether, the arid Australian Outback as different from the fertile Chesapeake Bay as two regions can be. All of which makes the Outback an intriguing choice for the next major exhibit at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. It promises to be the setting for an exotic array of creatures that have never been seen in an American aquarium. It also will reinforce the 20-year-old aquarium's stature as a global biopark capable of telling powerful stories about habitats around the world - and the need to protect them.
