Make a difference today

Admission and membership cover some costs of running the Aquarium, but many of our free education programs depend on your support. Your donation to Aquarium of the Bay helps provide our visitors with the chance to learn about how their actions affect the health of the Bay and give over 20,000 Bay Area children with FREE conservation education programs each year.

Make a gift today and help us give every visitor a reason and a means to learn about and protect our delta, bay, coast, ocean, and the amazing animals that live here.

As a 501 (c)(3) conservation charity, we can't do it without you. Our Federal Tax ID is 90-0401015. Thank you for your support.
