Review of Turtles Journey of Survival at Adventure Aquarium




Last weekend I visited Adventure Aquarium to check out their newest exhibit Turtles: Journey of SurvivalThis limited-engagement exhibit showcases an array of land and aquatic turtle and tortoise species from all over the world - over 20 different turtles - including two recently rescued Loggerhead Sea turtles. The exhibit includes the largest and most diverse collection of turtles ever assembled at Adventure Aquarium and will feature special character appearances, live shows and programming designed to shed light on local conservation efforts and practical ways to help protect turtles in the wild.


This exhibit is a great way for kids to learn about turtles up close and understand their habitat.  I never realized that there were so many different species of turtles.  My kids loved comparing the turtles in size, color and texture.




We got to meet 'Ozzy"a yearling (toddler) who was deemed “non-releasable” by US Fish & Wildlife officials. Ozzy will remain a permanent member of Adventure Aquarium’s collection, serving as an ambassador for Loggerhead Sea turtles worldwide. 




One of my favorite parts of the exhibit was the Terrapin Tide Pool, you can't touch the turtles but it's a great way to get up-close and see the turtles.  We fell in love with two turtles following one another around the pool.



If your looking for a family fun adventure this winter head to Adventure Aquarium  before March 24th to check out the Turtles: Journey of Survival
