Naming Opportunities

We are excited to offer you an exclusive opportunity to sponsor one of our exhibits. Leave a lasting impression by honoring a loved one, celebrating a special occasion, or showing your love for the Aquarium. Your commitment to Mississippi Aquarium will inspire others to support our mission and allow us to bring more aquatic life to our guests.
All donors will be recognized on signage around the exhibit. Corporate partners, additional donor recognition, employee engagement and other external promotions can be negotiated. Donors will complete a formal agreement with Mississippi Aquarium at the time of the naming agreement.

Annual Fund

Making a gift to our Annual Fund helps support animal health, education and conservation initiatives, aquatic research and future growth.

Penguin Campaign

What’s black and white and needs a new home? Our South African “Mississippian” Penguins!

African Penguins are one of the most endangered penguin species and are in urgent need of conservation intervention. Our colony of African Penguins here at Mississippi Aquarium have an important job to act as ambassadors for their species. Caring for this species allows us to educate guests and spread their conservation message.
