This accession consists primarily of records that document the concept, design, and installation of the Environmental Awareness Program's (EAP) traveling exhibition Ocean Planet, which opened at the National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) on April 22, 1995. The exhibit, which is meant to heighten the public's awareness of conservation issues facing the oceans of the world, ended at NMNH on April 30, 1996 and then went on tour to different locations around the country.
