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!

#DidYouKnow -- Male diamondback terrapins rarely leave their aquatic environment, but female terrapins come out of the marsh from late April through July to lay their eggs. Terrapins often cross the road on the causeway in search of a preferred nesting habitat and are prone to be hit by automobiles.
