Ride the Wild Swell

Sea Turtle, Inc.

Former pilot turned sea turtle savior, Ila Fox Loetscher fell in love with these adorable creatures while assisting with a nesting project in Mexico. Affectionately called the "The Turtle Lady of South Padre," she founded Sea Turtle, Inc., in 1977, and made it her mission to rehabilitate and rescue sea turtles. Loetscher passed in 2000 but her spirit and foundation live on. Donations are accepted, so be a pal and help save the turtles!
