Protect Rivers

Every day, we impact water, and water impacts us.

The many ways that water shapes and enriches our lives is at the core of the Tennessee Aquarium’s nonprofit work. The Tennessee Aquarium Conservation Institute (TNACI) furthers the Aquarium’s impact by conducting scientific studies, restoring our region’s natural ecosystems and educating members of the public to take conservation action.

With the construction of a riverfront facility for TNACI, the Aquarium is growing its capacity to actively protect the health of our water and the amazingly diverse animals in our region.
