After finding a nest as a volunteer foot patroller, the Kemp’s ridley captured my heart and set everything in motion. I became totally bonded to the Sea Turtle, Inc. mission and saw firsthand that conservation really does make a difference.

As a Texas Master Naturalist and Certified Interpretive Guide (NAI), I enjoy seeing the connection visitors make with our resident turtles. By helping to enrich their experience, our message travels across the country. Their joy, enthusiasm and interest in sea turtles and what we do, are making a difference on a daily basis.

Favorite Sea Turtle Species

The Kemp’s ridley brought me to the “dance” but each of the five species in the Gulf of Mexico has a special place in my heart.
