Sea Turtle Island is now open! Our new Sea Turtle Island exhibit is home to two 300-pound loggerhead sea turtles, reef sharks and other tropical fish. The 56,000-gallon tank is surrounded by a boardwalk and can be experienced from three viewing levels-including an underwater observation station for children to view the exhibit from within the water.
Educational components highlight the endangered status of sea turtles, their important role in the wild and how our actions, even in Oklahoma, can impact sea turtles and their ocean habitat.
Please note – for the safety of our sea turtles, no food or drinks are allowed in Sea Turtle Island. Strollers and wagons must be parked outside of the exhibit during high volume crowds.
