You can make a difference today by becoming a Georgia Aquarium member or supporting our 4R Program. As a 501(c)3 not-for-profit, we rely on the support of our community to continue with our groundbreaking research initiatives, educational programs and conservation efforts.
The 4R Program encompasses, supports and funds Georgia Aquarium efforts in the areas of rescue, rehabilitation, research and responsibility. Within the Aquarium, the 4Rs are seen in virtually every exhibit, from our beluga whales to our loggerhead sea turtles, to our living coral reef and sea otters. Behind the scenes at the Aquarium, the 4R Program plays an active role by funding work through the Correll Center for Aquatic Animal Health, the integration of a novel postdoctoral veterinary residency program in clinical medicine and pathology; our state-of-the-art commissary; our biologists’ daily activities; and, even in research as far away as Alaska, Mexico, Russia and South Africa.
Why the 4R Program is Important
Support of Georgia Aquarium’s 4R Program enables us to continue making a positive impact in the health and welfare of aquatic life from around the globe. This pioneering program allows us to remain at the forefront of aquatic science worldwide.
