Sea Turtle Art Trail of South Padre Island
Sea Turtle Inc., local artists, and the City of South Padre Island have developed a novel approach to bring sustained awareness about the need to protect sea turtles while at the same time showcasing local artistic talent.  The Sea Turtle Art Trail project began in 2019 with a call for artists and since that time, several sea turtles have been installed throughout the city.  Ila Loetscher's tremendous efforts forever connected South Padre Island with sea turtle conservation and the Sea Turtle Art Trail truly reflects the area's ongoing love for these creatures which continue to struggle for survival as a species. 

Each of the sea turtles on the Art Trail is as unique as the artist who painted them and every one of them is a beautiful addition to the city as public works of art for all to enjoy.  The Sea Turtle Art Trail is free and maps are available upon request at the South Padre Island Visitors Center.
