Meet Your New Best Friend!

Once you choose your animal, you'll receive an adoption kit to make it official

Georgia Aquarium is now offering the opportunity to symbolically adopt your choice of a common bottlenose dolphin, green sea turtle, southern sea otter or whale shark. Your adoption supports Georgia Aquarium’s vital education programs including STEM camps, robotics workshops, teacher professional development and community outreach. This support is invaluable to Georgia Aquarium’s commitment to helping present and future generations gain a greater understanding of our oceans and the connection between humans and aquatic life.

Each adoption kit includes a plush, 5×7 adoption certificate (includes an area to write in the adopter’s name), 4×6 species fact card, and a drawstring backpack. Our green sea turtle and southern sea otter Plushes are made from 100% recycled plastic and recycled plush material.

We do not ship outside the US at this time.
