2018 Ridley Rush @ Gladys Porter Zoo | Brownsville | Texas | United States

The Ridley Rush is 1-Mile Run/Walk that runs through Gladys Porter Zoo. The Ridley Rush kicks off YappoPalooza Festival which is a family oriented festival and fundraiser to benefit the Binational Kemp’s Ridley and other Sea Turtle Conservation Projects. As federal and state funds have dwindled over the years, this direct funding has become mission critical to sustain the Kemp’s Ridley Project and provide support to other sea turtle projects. The Kemp’s Ridley Project has both a successful track record and the real possibility of downlisting this most iconic of marine animals. Other proven sea turtle projects may receive funding to promote conservation efforts.
