Green Sea Turtle

Ken Kurtis/Aquarium of the Pacific

Learn about how the Aquarium is helping to understand and protect green sea turtles in Southern California. The mouth of the San Gabriel River is the northernmost known home of Pacific green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas), where they thrive in an unexpectedly urban environment. The Aquarium engages members of our local community to observe and collect data about these resident sea turtles. This information is then used by scientists, local agencies, and the Aquarium for conservation efforts. Hear about this important program and some of the interesting findings that help shed light on this threatened population.

Watch live below or sign in via Zoom. Please note that questions will only be answered for those via the Zoom webinar.
