A Message from President and CEO, Jesse Gilbert

It has been a busy few months for the Texas State Aquarium Wildlife Rescue Program, as hundreds of loggerhead sea turtles have been stranded on Mustang and North Padre islands. Since July, the Aquarium's Wildlife Rescue program has cared for more than 40 loggerhead sea turtles that were found injured or ill, and we are currently housing 27 large loggerheads. See the video below to see what the Port of Corpus Christi and the Wildlife Rescue Program are doing to provide aid during this unusual stranding event, utilizing all available resources and adjusting to meet the increasing demand.
