Dolphin Field Station

Dolphin Field Station

Founded in April of 2008, Georgia Aquarium's Conservation Field Station (GAI-CFS) is a joint venture between the Georgia Aquarium and Marineland's Dolphin Adventure. 

Funded by donations and grants, our vision is to increase public awareness and contribute to scientific study through conservation.  

GAI-CFS is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to research and rescue of dolphins and small whales in Northeast Florida.

Georgia Aquarium is the world's largest and features more animals than any other aquarium in more than eight million gallons of water. Through a path of more than sixty exhibits, the Aquarium tells a global water story, with features modeled after the greatest zoos and aquariums in the world. Each majestic exhibit is designed to inspire, entertain and educate.

Marineland's Dolphin Conservation Center offers a wide variety of opportunities for meeting dolphins. Programs range from up-close encounters at pools edge to deep water swimming. No place on earth combines Marineland's history, authentic location with access to both the Atlantic and Intracoastal, direct dolphin contact, and dedication to preservation. Our focus is on personal interaction between the dolphins and visitors.
