Donate to one of our Mission Funds

Animal Care Fund


Help us care for our animals at the Aquarium who are the ambassadors for their species in the wild. Your contribution helps feed, provide medicine, health care, and even fun time through enrichment items and programs.





Conservation and Research Fund 


The Florida Aquarium is actively involved in restoring coral reefs and was the first facility to grow endangered staghorn coral in managed care. We also serve as a rehabilitation facility authorized by Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission for animals in need such as sea turtles and river otters.



Education and Community Outreach Fund


The Aquarium has educated and inspired more than one million school children to be good stewards of the natural environment. We also host thousands of school children each year during summer camps, programs and field trips, offering reduced or free visits to Title One schools in Florida.


Donate to our Special Fund


We must work quickly to grow as much coral as possible to restore and replenish coral reefs. The Florida Aquarium’s coral conservation team has been studying this coral spawn for more than a decade, and is working closely with the University of Florida, the Coral Restoration Foundation (CRF) and various members of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
