Saving Southern California’s Urban Sea Turtles

January 27 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM

The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California, in partnership with The Academy of Science – St. Louis, present—Saving Southern California’s Urban Sea Turtles, a virtual event about sea turtles in Southern California.

COST: $5 per household. OPEN to ALL. Families, Junior Academy members, elementary, middle, and high school students welcome and encouraged to attend. Space is limited. Registration required. CLICK the Event Information link below to register! Registrants receive the Zoom link to join via an Eventbrite confirmation email immediately after registering.

In and around Southern California’s San Gabriel River near Long Beach is a local population of Pacific green sea turtles at the tip of its northernmost range. Considered threatened, this local population has been recovering thanks to efforts from government and nonprofit organizations, such as the Aquarium of the Pacific. Working to help this resident population thrive, the Aquarium conducts a sea turtle monitoring program and provides any necessary treatment and rehabilitation of injured turtles, with veterinary care at the Aquarium.

Join Cassandra Davis, Dr. Lance Adams, and Nate Jaros, of the Aquarium of the Pacific, for a fascinating multimedia look at Southern California’s urban population of threatened sea turtles and efforts to conserve them. The Aquarium of the Pacific, the nation’s fourth most attended aquarium, is currently home to two olive ridley sea turtles, Theo and Lou, residents since 1998, and Copper, the Aquarium’s green sea turtle.
