Save a Turtle Saturday

March 1, 2014 - 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Learn how the Houston Zoo works to save turtles around the world, and find out how you can make a difference to your local turtles! This event begins at 8 a.m. during Member Morning, as the Zoo opens an hour early for members. Members will be able to enjoy a special visit from Dr. Joe Flanagan as he answers questions and discusses his extensive experience working with sea turtles.
 
From 9 a.m. to noon, Save a Turtle Saturday features a variety of games, turtle story time, and the Swap Shop will offer double points on all turtle-related items! Activities will be in several areas throughout the zoo; details will be provided closer to the event.
 
Save a Turtle Saturday focuses on the threats and dangers facing marine and land-based turtles around the world. Talk turtles with Zoo staff from our herpetology, aquarium, and primate departments, all areas that host these incredible creatures.
 
All activities are free with Zoo admission!
