Beaches is one of Artist Boat’s resident animal ambassadors. As a rescue animal, the Diamondback Terrapin turtle was found in distress on the ocean-side beach of the island. After a thorough cleaning and rehabilitation, Beaches was assigned to Artist Boat as he was not able to be released back to the wilds of Galveston Bay due to damage to his front webbing. Visitors are able to meet Beaches in his office, where his outgoing personality is a highlight of their visit. As an animal ambassador, Beaches often visits with campers for educational purposes and was an honored guest at our World Ocean Day Festival.
