Gopher turtles are plentiful on Amelia Island and are a beloved animal in the Southeast. The gopher turtle is a prized and protected species along the dunes of Amelia Island.  They must remain in their territory or they cannot survive.


"Beachwalker"  measures 6" x 8" x 13" and is a bronze sculture.  Jim Ratliff originally creates his unique sculptures in clay which are then cast in bronze.
