Turtles About Town

Turtles About Town is a city wide project in Galveston. The project has been put in place to help raise awareness about the Kemps Ridley sea turtle while helping drive tourism and business to the local economy. Clay Cup Studios, Galveston’s local interactive art studio, has partnered with Turtle Island Restoration (TIRN). TIRN is a leading advocate for the world’s oceans and marine wildlife.

Sponsors in the community will sponsor a turtle statue. Local artists then work with the sponsor or business to come up with a theme for their turtle. The turtles will then be installed at the desired location. To get involved, simply email or you can call Clay Cup Studios at (409)762-2529.

There will also be a smaller traveling turtle. Ridley will get to travel to participating businesses. Locals and Island visitors will be on the lookout for Ridley to snap their picture with him. Ridley will be auctioned off to help raise money for Turtle Island Restoration.
