Georgiaaquarium shopping tips

How do you acquire your species?
The animals at Georgia Aquarium come to us in a number of ways. Some are rescued animals, that would not be able to survive on their own in their natural habitat. Some examples of rescued animals at the Aquarium include several of our California sea lions, southern sea otters Tank the green sea turtle and the manta ray, Nandi.
Other animals were born at the Aquarium or at other zoological institutions.
Some animals come to Georgia Aquarium from aquaculture facilities – where aquatic animals are bred and reared for places like the Aquarium. Many of our jellies are cultured right here in the Aquarium’s jelly lab. Other species of fish and other animals are cultured elsewhere before coming to the aquarium.
Some animals are carefully collected by the animal experts at Georgia Aquarium so that they can serve as ambassadors for their species in one of our many exhibits. These animals help teach people about their species, the environments they live in and the dangers they face, so that we can take action to help protect them.
