The Oklahoma Aquarium Pays Homage to Their Fav Sea Turtle During a Birthday Party Celebration

Celebrate Oklahoma Aquarium’s loggerhead sea turtle's 25th birthday with special treats, gifts, and fun activities for everyone on Saturday, November 9, from 2-4 pm!

Oklahoma Aquarium will reveal the new name of our male turtle, and you'll find out how you can help save the sea turtles from right here in Oklahoma. What's the best gift you can get for a sea turtle? More birthdays! That may sound complicated, but it's as simple cleaning out those plastic bags from your kitchen. One way we can all give the gift of more birthdays is by reducing the number of plastic grocery bags that end up in our oceans.

Even from Oklahoma, our plastic bags and other garbage have the potential to reach a sea turtle's habitat as it flows down waterways connecting to the Mississippi River, and ultimately, the Gulf of Mexico. Once in the ocean, a hungry loggerhead sea turtle may ingest the plastic bag, mistaking its identity for a tasty-looking sea jelly. This is a common mistake that sea turtles make, but they can't make that mistake when they have you to help them!

In honor of our loggerhead sea turtle's 25th birthday, we wanted you to give him a special gift—a name! After tallying all of the votes from the Sea Turtle Naming Contest, you and your family will find out his official name during the big reveal at his birthday party on Saturday.

The Sea Turtle Birthday Bash is free for members and general admission for non-members. For more information, please visit www.okaquarium.org or call 918-296-3474.

We know how important it is to participate in all of the latest and greatest activities that take place in our community—especially after a long week at the office. Luckily enough for you, adventure is always right around the corner at Ridgemont Apartments in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
