Ways to Help CMA
Clearwater Marine Aquarium is first and foremost a marine life hospital. During these challenging times, we are relying on our community of supporters more than ever. There are a variety of ways that you can support CMA and help us continue our mission.
We are also currently seeking funds for our new manatee rehabilitation center and continued manatee rescue and conservation efforts in response to the recent red tide crisis on the Gulf Coast and an ongoing Unusual Mortality Event on Florida’s east coast.
Manatees are in critical need and we need your support to help them.
Donate to Our Cause
Support our mission by donating to our cause! Choose between a monthly or one-time donation and help us continue to help our residents and rehabilitating animals. Every dollar donated goes toward animal care, food, and medicine. Our animals depend on you for a second chance at life.
Show your support by setting up a Facebook Fundraiser. These fundraisers are a safe and easy way to ask your friends and family to support a mission you are passionate about!

Give To Get
You can support our mission of rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing marine life as well as the caring for our rescued residents by ordering a Personalized Video for yourself or a loved one. Receive a personalized message with your favorite resident animal and an animal care specialist to watch again and again!
While we are a working marine animal hospital, we also conduct a lot of research on marine life in the wild! When purchasing an item from our Marine Life Rescue Project store, you are supporting our pivotal research efforts to learn more about wild dolphins, manatees, sea turtles and right whales. If you’re looking for resident plushes, t-shirts and more, our CMA Gift Shop is a great place to look! All items purchased from our CMA Gift Shop help with the care of our rescued and resident animals.
