“Ambassador of the Gulf”
24″x24″ Acrylic on Canvas by David Rosenbaum
After working on this piece in Texas and North Carolina it is on its way to our facility! It will raise money at our Annual Fundraiser next Saturday on Sept 16th as a live auction item for sea turtle rehabilitation and conservation of the critically endangered kemp’s ridley turtle. The patterns David put on this turtle were inspired by textile patterns created by the Shipibo tribe of the Amazon basin which remind him quite a bit of the actual scale pattern on the heads of ridleys. Tickets to our fundraiser are available for purchase online and in our facility.
David was a 2017 intern of Sea Turtle, Inc. and is currently an intern at Bald Head Island Conservancy – BHI Conservancy. We wish him all the best in his current turtle adventure!
