"Shelly Sandersun" is a Turtle About Town, one of several turtle sculptures raising awareness of Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtles that call the Texas Coast home.
Ellie Peters, Artist
“I was thrilled to be asked to be part of a project that brings awareness to the plight of the sea turtle. Our island belongs to them as much as it does to us.”
Alice Taylor Gray Foundation, Sponsor
“We think it’s a great way to promote conservation and to bring attention to sea turtles; plus Sand ‘N Sea’s founder is a turtle fan!”
