Turtles at SEA LIFE

SEA LIFE's Rescued Sea Turtles

See Ziva, our rescued green sea turtle, in our breathtaking underwater ocean tunnel. You can usually catch her swimming overhead in our 360-degree ocean tunnel or wedged between a rock to take an underwater nap. Green sea turtles cannot breathe underwater, but did you know that they can hold their breath for up to 7 hours while they're napping or resting?! Woah!

Full of personality, she often comes face to flipper with you as she is a curious creature. Ziva was the victim of boat strike and we give her extraordinary care and an amazing forever home at SEA LIFE Arizona because she is unable to return to the wild.

You'll also come face-to-flipper with Donna, our newest addition to SEA LIFE! Donna is an Olive Ridley sea turtle that was found cold-stunned off the coast of Northern California. You can catch her swimming around and waving hello in our brand new Sea Turtle Rescue Reef exhibit!

WHOA - You Need to SEA This!

  • Ziva love eating veggies, and you can sometimes spot a sea turtle feeding too!
  • Donna is more of a meat eater and squid is her all-time favorite
