#DidYouKnow Asian small-clawed otters use their whiskers to detect changes in water current and pressure? You can visit them in our River Scout gallery!

One of our weedy seadragons is expecting! With the male weedy carrying more than 200 developing eggs on its tail, the "birthing" process of these exquisite fish is quite unique! bit.ly/SeadragonBlog

Introduction

Georgia Aquarium is an entertaining, intriguing and educational experience for guests of all ages. While promoting a fun and enjoyable learning experience, the Aquarium instills in its guests a new appreciation for the world’s aquatic biodiversity.

To date, Georgia Aquarium has attracted more than eleven million visitors and employs more than 400 employees and a dedicated core of more than 2,000 volunteers. The Aquarium has dedicated twenty-five percent of the gallery space to educating students of all ages who visit the Aquarium, we call it our Learning Loop. The Aquarium utilizes innovative technologies as well as interactive and interdisciplinary techniques to ensure that students have an enjoyable academic experience.

One of the Georgia Aquarium’s major goals is to be the leading facility for aquatic animal conservation and research. Our state-of-the-art animal health facility, the Correll Center for Aquatic Animal Health, is 10,000 square feet and was designed by world class veterinarian professionals and conservation organizations. It is the only integration of an aquarium and a veterinarian teaching hospital. On a more global scale, the Georgia Aquarium supports, conducts and leads research on environmental and conservation issues.

Georgia Aquarium is a 501(c)3 organization, and we rely on community support to fund our special programs including education and veterinary services.
