San Antonio Aquarium, San Antonio TX
Austin Aquarium, Austin TX
Moody Gardens Aquarium, Galveston Texas

Aquarium of the Pacific, Long Beach CA
Georgia Aquarium, Atlanta GA
The goal being inline with our organizations mission to inspire the "nation" with educational and entertaining media as we ask our members LIVE on Facebook what questions they have. These videos get hundreds of comments & thousands of views! We hope to increase our distribution of these videos & bring along volunteers & influencers that would be interested in spotlighting the nation!
We've been featured on @TheEllenShow's Instagram 4 times to over 50 million people
Some Goals are
To create a definitive guide of all octopus species and have it illustrated by artists from the nation (ideally) We'd like to make this widely available to staff members who work with octopuses in every single aquarium in the world.
To work with various journalists, underwater photographers/videographers to create short educational videos
To fund the first Octopus Only Aquarium & research institute
We've got big things to do! & we want you to be apart of it!
