Discovery and Georgia Aquarium together will increase the availability of aquatic animal conservation and animal care content through an exciting new multi-platform partnership. This collaboration will provide Discovery’s multi-platform audiences and discovery+, with immediate access to innovative real-time content that will highlight Georgia Aquarium’s global conservation efforts and major milestones of the animals who call the 11 million gallons of water at the Atlanta-based aquarium home.

The content created by the all-new partnership will include milestone moments with animals, featuring celebrations of the birth of animals; day to day activities at the aquarium; and expert-led analysis of animal stories in the news. Other content will include virtual field trips; social media live stream events with animals and aquarists; in-depth photo galleries on Discovery.com; and content that will help raise awareness of endangered aquatic species.
