We spent a summer weekend in South Padre studying marine biology. We visited a sea turtle hatchery and rehab hospital. We went on a harbor tour where we drug a net to look at the critters in the gulf (we released them back into the water). We got to see dolphins from the boat. And we spent an evening chasing ghost crabs on the beach (they were also released as soon as everyone got a good look at them.)
