Save our Oceans

Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch

The Tulsa Zoo is proud to be a Conservation Outreach Partner with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch®! We are supporting healthy, abundant oceans by partnering with Seafood Watch to promote sustainable seafood and do our part right here in Oklahoma. 

 

 

Help Save Our Oceans

We may be landlocked in Oklahoma, but our actions still have a big impact on the world's oceans. Here at the Tulsa Zoo, Dorsey and Briney, our two California sea lions, serve as our ambassadors for ocean conservation. Choices we ALL make everyday can have a great impact on the conditions threatening sea lions and other marine life. 

 

Overfishing

When humans catch fish faster than the fish can reproduce, food sources for marine species, including the sea lion become depleted. You can help by making environmentally responsible seafood choices. What we eat - and fish for - impacts what's available to marine predators, and can affect the ecosystems those animals live in.

So the next time you're having fish, whether you're at a restaurant or buying fresh from a grocer, you can make a difference! Download this pocket guide for a quick way to learn the sustainable seafood choices in our area.
