Southeastern Regional Sea Turtle Meeting February 2018

SERSTM Exhibitor 2018 – Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

I am excited to exhibit at my first Southeastern Regional Sea Turtle Meeting in February 2018! This meeting covers sea turtle conservation from Texas to the Virginia’s and beyond. Multiple workshops covering multiple sea turtle topics will be presented by top people in the sea turtle/marine wildlife world.  Exhibitors and Vendors will have information on sea turtle conservation programs, sea turtle artwork and sea turtle technological information!

My booth description for the event:

Kathleen Sheard, Wildlife Glass Artist, joined Alligator Point Sea Turtle Patrol in 2008. Starting with the tropical storms of 2009 and then the BP oil spill in 2010, in the Gulf of Mexico, the intention of her cast glass sea turtles would change. She is creating a new body of work that emphasizes the human-initiated threats that marine wildlife currently face. Using her cast glass sculptures, she brings into focus how these obstacles impact sea turtles and other aquatic wildlife daily. She will exhibit some of her recent works, along with other kiln formed and cast glass artwork. Drawings, prints and environmental photographs of her adventures with sea turtles and other marine life on a beach and in the ocean will be included. Bill Wargo, director of APSTP, sets up a table locally around Alligator Point, Florida with pamphlets and other informational objects to educate the children and adults about what we can do to help save turtles. Kathleen will have literature and books that she has found inspiring and educational on ways to save our threatened and endangered sea turtles.
