TULSA — The Oklahoma Aquarium is asking the community for a name their sea turtle.

As a gift for their loggerhead sea turtle's 25th birthday, the Oklahoma Aquarium is asking for the community to submit what they think the turtle's name should be.

Submissions are due by October 1, 2019.


The Oklahoma Aquarium will then select their five favorite names as finalist.

Visitors can then vote on their favorite name at the Oklahoma Aquarium and receive an "I Voted" sea turtle sticker as a thank you.

The winner who submits the winning name will receive "turtle-y" awesome prizes and free admission to the special Sea Turtle Birthday Party on Saturday, November 9.
