Seafood Watch Conservation Outreach and Restaurant Partner
At the Tulsa Zoo, our 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. The Tulsa Zoo is a Conservation Outreach and Restaurant Partner of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Program. This program supports healthy, abundant oceans by promoting sustainable seafood. We may be landlocked in Oklahoma, but our actions still have a big impact on the world’s oceans.
Learn more about how the seafood choices you make impact current conditions threatening sea lions and other marine life at Seafood Watch.
Sustainable Palm Oil
The biggest threat to wild Asian elephants, tigers and primates is deforestation in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Nigeria and Colombia. The main crop planted after the forest is cleared is palm oil. Palm oil is used in many everyday foods and products, like cookies, crackers, toothpaste and lotion. Palm oil is a crop that is really important to the economy and people in Indonesia and Malaysia, and can be produced in a responsible way without cutting down the rainforest. This practice produces sustainable palm oil. The easiest thing you can do to help these wild animals is to support companies who are making the commitment to use sustainable palm oil.

The Monarch Initiative of Tulsa
The Tulsa Zoo is part of The Monarch Initiative of Tulsa, which is focused on monarch butterfly conservation within Tulsa and the state of Oklahoma. This group is made up of representatives from the Tulsa Garden Center, The Nature Conservancy – Oklahoma Chapter, Oxley Nature Center, Tulsa Botanic Garden, Riverfield Country Day School, and the Tulsa Zoo. The Monarch Initiative works to develop a consistent message that directs and mentors people within our community to create and plant monarch habitats, which are known as waystations.
Monarch Butterfly Conservation
Monarch butterflies need our help. Milkweed, their only food source, is experiencing a rapid decline, which could cause them to go extinct. You can help monarch butterflies by planting milkweed in your own backyard. By doing this, you are creating a Monarch Waystation, which provides monarch butterflies with a specific habitat to assist and maintain their migration periods.
Check out the Pollinator Guide, Native Plant ID Guide and Milkweed Guide from our friends at the Kerr Center for Sustainable Agriculture. Click here to learn more about this important organization, and to find additional literature about sustainable agriculture.
