Your generous donation will support our educational programs for both children and adults and help build character and strength within the aquarium’s walls.
Individual and Family Membership
As a not-for-profit organization, the World Aquarium exists on donations, visitation and other income associated with our facility. The care of the animals, development and dissemination of education programs, establishment of research projects and application to conservation activities all are part of what is made possible by donors like you. Membership allows you to visit the aquarium on an annual basis without having to go through additional hassle of ticket purchase and allows for unlimited numbers of visits by you and your family members at your chosen level of support. Memberships are good for one year and must be renewed annually. Members can visit year round at our new location in Laclede's Landing.
Adopt an Animal
Adopting an animal is a great way for you to get involved and help support the ongoing efforts of the World Aquarium. Your adoption package includes your name on an animal exhibit, an adoption certification and a picture and fact sheet of your adopted animal.
