The NY Aquarium, post Hurricane Sandy

When Hurricane Sandy buffeted the East Coast last week, one of the areas hardest hit was Coney Island on New York’s coastline. The New York Aquarium, located just off the boardwalk, braved the storm but has sustained serious damages, and is now closed to the public indefinitely. You can read more here. While Sandy’s cost to the neighborhood’s homes and people is unimaginable, also affected were its aquatic inhabitants.

The Wildlife Conservation Society – with whom ESKW/A has a decade-long relationship – is collecting donations to rebuild. Please consider donating here.

Here are a few more organizations that are facilitating relief efforts:

American Red Cross

Rockaway Relief

Time Out New York
