Donate to 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

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.


Thom Stork Legacy Fund

Join us in remembering the late Thom Stork, former President/CEO of The Florida Aquarium. Gifts to this fund will support ongoing maintenance and improvements to the Aquarium's beautiful outdoor waterside plaza—a place for children and families. Thom cherished his family, particularly his grandchildren, and saw the Aquarium through their eyes. He once said "educating and entertaining guests is not mutually exclusive: we can open the minds of children and adults amidst the laughter, getting wet and joyful togetherness in a place that is safe, magical and surprising."
