Friends of the UGA Aquarium

Support the Mission

Your gifts to UGA Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant support marine education, environmental outreach and coastal research. Over the past 40 years, we have taught hundreds of thousands of people about our state’s unique coastal and marine ecosystems. We also work hand-in-hand with local governments and coastal industries to help build sustainable, resilient coastal communities and economies. Your gift today will help protect Georgia’s coastal resources and educate future generations in ocean literacy and environmental leadership.
