"Wags" is a Turtle About Town, one of several turtle sculptures raising awareness of Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtles that call the Texas Coast home.
Kathryn Zimmerman, Artist
“I did not think I would have the opportunity to be the artist for a second turtle. All of my fur babies came from the Galveston Humane Society. When I was approached there was only one answer for me, and it was a big yes! I’m truly honored to be the artist for this project and sponsor.”
Galveston Island Humane Society, Sponsor
“The Galveston Island Humane Society is dedicated to promoting animal welfare and we believe supporting the conservation efforts to protect the endangered sea turtles is in line with our mission. Wags is a beautiful addition to our family and we hope that when people visit her, they may also consider adopting a new K9 or feline Best Friend.”
