In their letter to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution this week supporting the Georgia Aquarium, Georgia Tech biology professors Mark Hay and Doug Snell quoted Senegalese conservationist Baba Dioum who said, “In the end, we will only conserve what we love. We will only love what we understand. We will only understand what we are taught.” Since opening in November 2005, the Aquarium has provided more than 5,000,000 visitors, including more than 100,000 school children and teachers, with a personal connection to aquatic life.

Make a Difference with Sponsored Admissions
Seven lucky children from Atlanta were able to attend the Aquarium’s Camp H20 summer camp this year because of a generous contribution from Frazier & Deeter, LLC, a leading certified accounting firm in the Southeast. “Because stewardship is one of the core values of Frazier & Deeter, LLC, we wanted to give back to the community, ”said a spokesperson for Frazier & Deeter, LLC.
This contribution to the Aquarium’s Sponsored Admissions program, among many others from local individuals, foundations and organizations including Mr. & Mrs. Timothy Pakenham, The Coca-Cola Foundation, Gordy Foundation and the Morgens West Foundation, have funded more than 5,000 families and children since our opening. Many of the recipients of this gift have limited resources, or are facing physical challenges that may otherwise prohibit them the opportunity to learn and become engaged at the world’s largest aquarium.
