A donation to the Turtle Lady Legacy is both an investment in sustaining South Padre Island’s cultural history and a gift to future generations of Kemp’s Ridley sea turtles.

The Turtle Lady Legacy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation; therefore, donations are tax-deductible and will be used for operational costs, educational programs, and to eventually help us to establish a permanent place where the public can visit to learn about the Turtle Lady and her remarkable achievements.


Donations in any amount are welcome and can be mailed to us at the address below. [Checks should be made payable to The Turtle Lady Legacy]
