Welcome to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center! Through sea turtle rehabilitation, research and educational programs, the Georgia Sea Turtle Center works to increase awareness of habitat and wildlife conservation challenges, promote responsibility for ecosystem health and empower individuals to act locally, regionally, and globally to protect the environment.
The Georgia Sea Turtle Center is a hospital for ill and injured sea turtles, and we are the only hospital of its kind in Georgia! The Center is open to the public and offers an interactive Exhibit Gallery and Rehabilitation Pavilion, where guests can view our patients and witness their recovery process. While visiting the Center, guests will experience as hands-on, multi-faceted day of learning, both about sea turtles as well as marine life and our sensitive coastal eco-system.
After seeing the work done at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, many guests ask how they can contribute to our mission. And we have ways for our guests to do just that! Adopting a sea turtle has become a prime way visitors can support the Center and stay connected to our work. For a small donation, guests can contribute funding to support Georgia Sea Turtle Center patients and further our mission of rehabilitation, research and education.
Adoptive donors can choose a current patient, or released patient with a satellite transmitter, and follow their tremendous journey from hospital to sea. These donations help offset operating costs, such as medication and food for in-house patients, and also support our research to help sea turtles across the globe.
