First Island YappoPalooza an Initial Success!

After working hard for several months, STI staff members are pretty thrilled about how well the YappoPalooza Festival and Benefit went over Father’s Day weekend. This was the first time Sea Turtle, Inc. hosted the fifth annual event. Previously, YappoPalooza was held in San Marcos, Texas.

YappoPalooza is a fundraiser for sea turtle conservation, but it is also a vehicle to share Jeffrey Boruff’s story and inspire the next generation(s) to give of themselves. Jeffrey was a key volunteer in the Bi-National Kemp’s Ridley Project in Rancho Nuevo, Mexico — operated by the Gladys Porter Zoo. He knew his passion could make a difference and worked hard to make it true. Yappopalooza is a volunteer-driven community festival — and STI volunteers rallied to make those two days fantastic.
Thank you, everyone, for your part in helping us conserve these wonderful animals!!
