ALERT: After careful consideration, we have made the decision to close Georgia Aquarium to public guests. We continue to closely monitor this ever-evolving situation around COVID-19 with the ongoing commitment to the health and wellbeing of our guests, staff, volunteers and animals.

Use Your Skills to Help the Aquarium

If you have a passion for aquatic life and a talent of engaging with people, we can use your skills. Join us in creating an Aquarium experience that will entertain and educate millions of individuals each year!

The Military Volunteer Program is open to active military, retired military, or veterans of the United States Armed Forces. Military volunteers will assist in Georgia Aquarium’s mission to foster a deeper appreciation for our ocean, its animals, and the environment.
