Current Campaign – The Sea Turtle Experience

The Oklahoma Aquarium is a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit education and research facility, so donations are tax-deductible and go directly to animal care which includes improving and developing new exhibits. We are currently focused on raising funds for completion of the Sea Turtle Experience, a new exhibit to house two loggerhead sea turtles, currently living behind-the-scenes.  The 18-year-old brothers weigh close to 300 pounds each, so we are anxious to move them into their new home!
