Wave of Action

Make a turtle,
join the wave
The ocean is facing problems – but together we can make a wave of change. Join hundreds of Tacomans to make a "Turtle Wave" of paper turtles, each with your pledge to protect the ocean.

“Waves” from Metro Parks community centers will join the Zoo’s in a floating tribute to Tacoma's care for the ocean. Each turtle earns $2 towards ocean conservation in the Ocean Art Challenge.
