Research & Conservation

As a leader in aquatic research and animal care, Georgia Aquarium is committed to fostering a deeper appreciation for our ocean and the amazing animals that call it home. Along with members of the zoological community, we strive to serve as a representative of how we can make a change to protect our environment and ocean.

Together with other accredited facilities, our team conducts vital research by working with animals both in our care and in their natural habitats. Our research and conservation initiatives include work with African penguins, whale sharks, manta rays, beluga whales, sea turtles, coral, dolphins, and many others.

Thanks to support from our generous donors and sponsors, we are able to conduct these research efforts to better understand marine animals and protect our oceans worldwide. Help us continue our mission to make a difference today.
