The mission of Turtles About Town is to bring together art, awareness, and advocacy.
Turtles About Town is a community art project showcasing the City of Galveston and the conservation efforts of Turtle Island Restoration Network to protect endangered sea turtles on the upper Texas coast.
Turtle lovers of all ages have the opportunity to see 19 colorful Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle statues that have popped up around Galveston Island, Texas.
Businesses and organizations graciously sponsored the turtles while local artists were commissioned to give each one its own personality and meaning that is representative of Galveston. Enjoy your tour and tag images with #TurtlesAboutTown!
