PALM COAST, Fla. — The Palm Coast Arts Foundation will introduce a new turtle to the public art Turtle Trail on Friday.
Turtle #17 will be unveiled at 10 a.m. at Mala Campra Park.
Artist Chance Hancotte designed the turtle with inspiration from Dr. Rampa and Manop Rattanarithikul, who contributed over 50 years to malaria research and entomology.
Rattanarithikul’s studies and paintings showed how the mosquito is essential to the natural environment.
The East Flagler Mosquito Control District has sponsored Turtle #17 for its 70th anniversary.
The next turtle is scheduled to be revealed on Oct. 15.
