Dear Foundation Friends,

When you visit Jekyll Island, it’s almost impossible NOT to take great pictures. You probably have a few on your smart phone of yourself with Jekyll’s pristine beauty or historic buildings in the background. If this is indeed the case, why not share? Post them to facebook and instagram using #JekyllIslandFoundation. Chances are you’ll see them here, and help us make even more friends!

Through the efforts of the Jekyll Island Foundation, the Jekyll Island Authority’s Georgia Sea Turtle Center is currently developing, and in the process of implementing, a brand new interactive exhibit for our main gallery. As visitors follow the Journey of a Sea Turtle, they will partake in a hands-on interactive mission to help cure one of our newest “sea turtle patients”, which is a life sized model of a sea turtle.

The sea turtles are not the only animals on Jekyll’s beaches laying eggs. The threatened Wilson’s plovers “Charadrius wilsonia” have been spotted by bird enthusiasts, tourists and the Georgia Sea Turtle Center’s morning turtle patrol. Have you seen any plovers in your time on Jekyll Island ?
