Sea Turtle Feeding

Observe Aquarists Feed and Train Our Rescued Loggerhead Sea Turtle

Tuesdays and Thursdays: 3 p.m.

What is that shiny red thing in the water? Why is the sea turtle swimming towards it? Our rescued Loggerhead Sea Turtle is target trained, meaning she knows to go to the bright red target when it’s time for a meal. Target training allows aquarists and veterinary staff to monitor how much the sea turtle is eating, assess her health when she comes to the surface, and positively reinforce interactions with caretakers. You may also see other training equipment in the exhibit while our Loggerhead Sea Turtle is fed. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to see staff interacting and training one of our most charismatic residents.
