Where is Georgia Sea Turtle Center?
Countless sea creatures roam off Georgia’s Atlantic Coast. Some stranded sea turtles do not return to the water by their own efforts. Although the loggerhead turtle is at home in all warm seas, it is one of the Endangered Species. The Georgia Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island is dedicated to animal protection and education.
Injured and sick Loggerhead sea Turtles, as the species is called in English, are nursed back to health and later released back into the sea provided with a transmitter. Thus, the employees gain important information about the nesting behavior of the animals. Visitors see the animals from up close and look over the shoulders of the helpers at work. In this way, the shelter promotes awareness of the threat and protection of the animals. With a bit of luck, nature lovers will discover females laying their eggs on the beach at night on guided Turtle Walks, or juveniles hatching in the morning and making their way into the sea.
