ATLANTA – Georgia-based Active Pest Control will serve as the title sponsor of the Active Pest Control Insect Exhibit effective January.
“Active Pest Control is excited and honored be a part of the Georgia Aquarium family,” said Active Pest Control CEO Tony Carder. “Active and Georgia Aquarium both share a passion for family fun activities and we are thrilled about the opportunity we have to partner with the Georgia Aquarium in educating students about insects. Active has continued to be blessed by an amazing team that is dedicated to maintaining our 31-year commitment of excellence and honoring our motto of ‘Where Relationships Matter.’ We look forward to a fantastic relationship with Georgia Aquarium”.
The Active Pest Control Insect Exhibit is featured in the Aquanaut Adventure gallery at Georgia Aquarium. These interactive, STEAM-based learning exhibits help students and guests of all ages learn about the world’s ecosystems through science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. The Insect Exhibit is a full display of some of the most colorful and interesting insects in the natural world. Guests learn about them and the roles each one play in their respective environments.
“This new relationship with Active Pest Control is a great opportunity for our guests to learn not only about our ecosystems and the insects within them, but about how insects impact different environments,” said Hiroshi Okuda, director of sponsor relations at Georgia Aquarium. “We are proud to have Active Pest Control sponsoring this unique exhibit in our Aquanaut Adventure gallery.”
The proceeds from Active Pest Control’s sponsorship will directly help fund Georgia Aquarium’s Sponsored Education Admissions (SEA) Program. This program offers free or reduced admission to schools and educational groups in need of financial assistance. In 2016 alone, more than 56,000 students visited Georgia Aquarium with the SEA Program.
