This unique venue was the home of Ila Loetscher, who was known as the \"Turtle Lady\" and who dedicated her life to saving sea turtles including the endangered Kemp's ridley sea turtle. Educational shows that feature the turtles are held on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 10:00 a.m.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Sea Turtle Inc...and when we got home...the things we learned there.. really made us rethink our recycling and even some of the regular purchases we make...my little one enjoyed seeing one of the turtles we saw there on Yahoos home page about getting prosthetic limbs...would recommend the Turtles to anyone visiting South Padre or the area in general. Great place.. great people.. great work!
It was an amazing place. I remember I went with the school for a field trip. Its real interesting to know about the turtles, and see how big they grow. I loved it, and i would go back if I was planning a trip.
Of all the things to see and do in S. Padre this is a must. Adults and kids will be amazed at the beautiful sea turtles. Our whole family found it fun and educational. We go back every year and plan to keep up this tradition of visting the sea turtles.
I like turtles and other animals. Like: mauses, cats, dogs... And I like shovs about animels, I like ewrithing about animals. But I dont like animal hanters, that kill animals. I vant too help ewri animal on the world.
This is a great place to visit while on the island. It was inexpensive, informative, interesting, and got to see up close some of the wildlife in the area that most of us probably wouldn't get to see otherwise. It only takes 45 - 60 minutes to see everything ask questions and take pictures. Plus in 5 - 10 years when you come back to visit or maybe in 20-25 years when you bring your children or grandchildren some of these turtles may still be here!
