Thank you to everyone who joined us at the Zoo this past Saturday, March 1st for our Save a Turtle Saturday event! We had such a great turnout for the Member Morning at the Aquarium and throughout the day. We can’t wait to celebrate turtles with you again next year!

Some highlights from the day:

Did you know we have turtles living in exhibits with our primates? At the orangutan exhibit staff told guests about the turtles who live in the moat!
