While you enjoy Texas City’s fishing and beautiful beaches, be aware that we are home to thousands of marine animals as well!! Sea turtles are seen on the Texas City Dike, as well as dolphins and even the occasional manatee!! Do not touch or capture them!! If you see an injured marine mammal or sea turtle, contact our Animal Control Officers immediately. We have the resources for every species in our city!!!
And please, PICK UP YOUR TRASH AND FISHING LINES!!! Animal Control Officers pick up a lot of animals injured due to littering and trash. Respect the environment and it will help protect our native species!!!
