The Georgia Aquarium Knows That Water Connects Us All

The Georgia Aquarium joined Change the Course and committed to restoring 10 million gallons of freshwater to Georgia ecosystems in 2018.

The Aquarium’s funding supports the Chattahoochee Riverkeeper’s work to build a new park along Proctor Creek that will reduce polluted runoff and flooding, and the Flint River Soil and Water Conservation District’s project assisting farmers in saving water and increasing production.

And, 10 million gallons also happens to be the amount of water in the Georgia Aquarium. They’re using that fun fact and their water restoration commitment as an opportunity to engage their visitors with water conservation messaging.

They are asking visitors to make a commitment with them and work to conserve water in their day-to-days lives be doing things like shortening shower times, reducing food waste, and landscaping with native plants.

Since launching the campaign in July, over 2,300 people have taken the pledge and are helping to do their part to Change the Course in Georgia. Check out the activation here.
