New Hawksbill Turtle Sculpture at Jamaica Inn

February 8, 2017


Staff members and Shadow pose for a group picture with the new sculpture 

JI staff and Mel Tennant “The Turtle Whisperer” commemorated our new Hawksbill turtle sculpture today. The sculpture affectionately named “Abigail” was created by Ricardo Edwards (Maintenance Dpt.) in honor of the rare species and the work that is being done to preserve their livelihood here on our shores.

    The turtle sculpture is fantastic! What a tribute to the Inn (Ricardo Edwards and Kyle Mais) to have partnered in the sanctuary effort AND to publicize an Inn staff member for such a contribution!!! I look forward to seeing “Abigail” next time I come to the Inn!!
