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.

A Beer for the Birds

Atlanta Brewing Company and Georgia Aquarium have created their second exclusive craft beer, featuring some of the Aquarium’s feathered friends, Penguin Pale Ale. This contemporary pale ale is a coppery-gold hue with a delicious taste to boot. This appetizing ale brings attention to Georgia Aquarium’s most popular aquatic bird, the endangered African Penguin. A portion of Penguin Pale Ale sales will go towards the Aquarium’s research and conservation efforts.

Atlanta Brewing Company and Georgia Aquarium continue to create beer that represents Atlanta in a unique way and highlights both organizations’ commitment to conservation.

Helping African Penguins Around the World

African penguin populations have dropped 60% in the last 30 years and the species is now considered endangered. Many of the penguins on exhibit at Georgia Aquarium are part of a Species Survival Plan (SSP) coordinated by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). These plans promote genetic diversity within populations of endangered species residing in zoological institutions by selective and strategic breeding. Georgia Aquarium partners with the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB) in Cape Town, South Africa. Georgia Aquarium assists SANCCOB with rescue, rehabilitation, and release of African penguins and other coastal birds.
