Turtle Lady Legacy
Sea Turtle Hatchlings Going to Sea in South Padre Island, Texas

For those who would like to contribute toward the rescue, rehabilitation, and ongoing efforts to help sea turtles to survive, please consider making a donation to one or more of the following worthy organizations:

Sea Turtle Inc Logo
Sea Turtle Inc.

Sea Turtle Org Logo
World Wildlife Fund Logo
Sea Turtle Conservancy Logo

       EEvery dollar donated toward any one of these groups goes a long way towards ensuring that sea turtles
          will continue to survive and eventually thrive thanks to the work of many dedicated and hard-working
          individuals who, in some way or another, reflect Ila's legacy begun so long ago on a remote stretch of
          beach on a barrier island located 3 miles from the Texas shoreline.

Since the mid-1960s when Ila first began her crusade to save sea turtles, much progress has been made and today awareness programs span the entire globe.  However, there is still a long way to go before any of the sea turtle species can be removed from the Endangered Species List.
