HOUSTON (CW39) Sea animal enthusiast heads up, because Sea Turtle nesting season has started. Padre Island is looking to open up public viewing of the Sea Turtles very soon and are telling people to visit their website for updates.
The 2021 Kemp’s ridley nesting season has started! At this time, Park Officials are currently determining whether hatchling releases will be open to the public for the 2021 season. We greatly appreciate your support and interest in our work and look forward to resuming public releases as conditions and guidance allows.
