Big Things Are Coming Spring 2017

Sea Turtle Experience

Construction on our highly anticipated sea turtle experience is expected to be completed March 2017—just in time for spring break visitors. This significant building expansion will house two 300-pound loggerhead sea turtles, reef sharks and other tropical fish. The 65,000-gallon tank will be 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 will 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.
