Your donation is essential in providing support to the Aquarium's mission: To entertain, educate, and inspire stewardship about our natural environment.

To fulfill this mission The Florida Aquarium provides a unique experience to see first-hand marine and protected animals as well as representations of their natural habitats. 

The cost to provide top quality habitats and care to our animals exceeds what is brought in through admissions and programs at the aquarium. The Florida Aquarium relies on generous donations to continue inspiring visitors of all ages to become environmental stewards. Even the smallest donation can have a large impact in the care we are able to provide our resident and rescued animals.

  • ___ keeps our reptiles warm each week

  • ___ provides medical care for our river otters each month
  • ___ provides a natural habitat for our lemurs each month
