Friends of Padre participated in the first Ridley Rendezvous this past Saturday at the Malaquite Beach Visitor's Center to celebrate 40 years of sea turtle conservation.
We gave information about conservation and the importance of keeping trash out of our oceans and our beaches.
Also featured was our shadowbox memorial to our founder Captain Billy Sandifer. We commissioned the Frame Up shop in Corpus Christi to do the work and Theresa did a wonderful job! Friends of Padre Secretary, Cody Moravits (R) and our friend and P.I.N.S. Education Coordinator William Buzz Botts (L) taking the memorial into the building where it will soon be on display.
