Cheektowaga artist Ken Newton, owner of Ken Newton Studios, has entered into a partnership with the Sea Turtle Conservancy (STC) located in Gainesville, Florida. As part of the partnership agreement, Newton will provide original artwork to be auctioned off at three Conservancy fundraisers each year. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of Newton’s sea turtle art will also benefit sea turtle conservation by contributing to the activities of the Conservancy, the world’s oldest and most accomplished sea turtle research and conservation organization.
For more than 50 years, the Sea Turtle Conservancy has been studying and protecting marine turtles and their habitats. STC’s research programs are providing pertinent biological information about sea turtles, its education programs are increasing awareness of the threats to sea turtle survival, and its conservation programs are helping to recover sea turtle populations around the world.
