About UGA Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant

UGA Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant is committed to improving the environmental, social and economic health of the Georgia coast through research, education and extension. We have several facilities along the coast, including the UGA Marine Education Center and Aquarium and the Shellfish Research Lab on Skidaway Island as well as our office in Brunswick. The aquarium is our most public-facing facility, serving more than 45,000 people annually through student field trips, teacher workshops, summer marine science camps, internships and public programs. The facility boasts 16 display tanks that house loggerhead sea turtles, stingrays, diamondback terrapins and more. Touch tanks allow visitors hands-on interactions with whelks and horseshoe crabs. Marine educators at the facility provide people of all ages with information and experiences that inspire them to appreciate the beauty and complexity of Georgia’s coastal habitats.
