On Saturday, March 1,  the  Zoo will host a special event called Save a Turtle Saturday. Guests will be able to learn how the Houston Zoo works to save turtles around the world, and find out how people can make a difference to their own local turtles. This event begins at 8 a.m. during Member Morning, as the Zoo opens an hour early for members. This Member Morning features the Aquarium which will showcase its green sea turtle. 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.

© Houston Zoo/Stephanie AdamsSave a Turtle Saturday focuses on the threats and dangers facing marine and land-based turtles around the world. During Save a Turtle Saturday, guests and children can participate in a variety of games, enjoy turtle story time, and visit the Swap Shop which will offer double points on all turtle-related items.

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.
