Ways to Give
The SunTrust Georgia Explorer gallery is a highly interactive gallery with touch pools full of horseshoe crabs, sea stars, stingrays and shrimp. Several large habitats feature a loggerhead sea turtle and the fish of Gray's Reef — an underwater area off the Georgia coast designated a National Marine Sanctuary. Whales live right off the Georgia coast! This gallery will connect you with right whales, which are one of the most endangered mammals on the planet.

Alien Invaders Have Arrived!
Venomous lionfish from the Pacific Ocean have invaded the Georgia coast. Like kudzu, these fish don't belong here, and they are changing our ocean ecosystem.
After working with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), we have brought some of these alien fish to Georgia Aquarium. Read more about these curious creatures. And don't forget to check out the new touchpools, located near the lionfish exhibit.
