Speaker: Sea Turtle, Inc
Main Talk: Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation
At Sea Turtle, Inc. their mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and release injured sea turtles; educate the public; and assist with conservation efforts for all marine turtle species.
Sea Turtle, Inc. was founded in 1977 by Ila Fox Loetscher, better known as “The Turtle Lady of South Padre Island.” In 1999, Sea Turtle, Inc. moved from Ila’s backyard into its current location at 6617 Padre Blvd.
Originally this organization was formed to aid in the protection and recovery of the endangered Kemp’s ridley sea turtle. Our mission has since expanded into three parts: Education, Rehabilitation, and Conservation.
Today, Sea Turtle, Inc. is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit that is funded through public donations and on-site gift shop sales. They do not receive any government funding.
