Turtle Lady to be honored

Special to the PRESS

Most people living on or near the Island have heard of Ila Loetcher, the beloved Turtle Lady.

Her efforts to conserve and learn all she could about the sea turtles who call South Padre Island home have spanned through the years to leave a legacy that still carries on after her death.

It is thanks, in a great part, to her that Sea Turtle Inc. was founded and  thrives today to aid in turtle rescue and rehabilitation.
