PORT ARANSAS, Texas - Tony Amos has been caring for injured and ill animals since the early 80's. The Animal Rehabilitation Keep (ARK) was started when, in the course of his research, Tony began to find sea turtles and aquatic birds on the beaches and in the local environment.
The ARK of today specializes in marine turtles and birds of the South Texas coast. The mission is to rescue and rehabilitate animals and return them to the wild.
Today's Edition of The Austin American Statesman features a story on Tony's work and the ARK in Port Aransas. Read the article in Statesman.com and watch a preview of the documentary "Leaving the ARK" which is being produced by an Austin filmmaker.
Our community and the island environment are a much better place as a result of Tony's tireless efforts.
