Our overall goal is to develop and aid in the implementation of achievable and practical solutions that will protect biodiversity but allow for management activities in natural areas. Much of our research is done in national parks and preserves in the United States, China, Thailand, and Indonesia."

Beavertail Aquarium

The RI Park Naturalist program runs the Beavertail Aquarium, which is housed in what was the foghorn house for the Beavertail Lighthouse.  The tanks in the aquarium are set up to imitate the environment of the Jamestown shoreline.  From crabs to fish and shellfish, there's always something new to discover at the aquarium.  Staff collect samples of marine life for the aquarium and return them to their natural habitat after a couple of weeks. They also facilitate tidal pool explorations along the shore at low tide, and host special events such as Bioluminescence Night.
