PRESS Staff Report
Sea Turtle Inc. has plenty to celebrate in 2012. Not only is it celebrating over three decades of service, with the nesting season drawing to a close, the organization has tallied a record number of hatchings, drawing attention from various media outlets along the way. But it’s not only the Ridleys that are making a comeback; Sea Turtle, Inc. has seen other species of turtles make their way to the shores of Padre Island.
For curator Jeff George, the numbers show that the conservation efforts of Sea Turtle, Inc. and organizations like it are working.
To help celebrate Sea Turtle, Inc.’s successes, it will hold its annual celebration at 6 p.m. on September 8 inside South Padre Island’s Hilton Garden Inn (7010 Padre Blvd).
