It was neat to be able to go into the turtle hospital and see what they do to help rehab the turtles!

I visited the Georgia Sea Turtle Center with my family, and we all fell in love with the beautiful turtles. There was a one year old turtle named Glory in a tank, that was just gorgeous. The staff at the center do such important work helping, protecting, and monitoring these innocent endangered creatures. We watched through a glass window as a veterinarian and assistants cleaned and dressed the wounds of an injured turtle. There was so much interesting information about sea turtles, that we could not digest it all in just one visit. It's a must see if you are in the area. It is a great activity for all ages.

My grand daughter had done a school project on the atlantic ocean for school she had a small turtle that she had gotten in Atlanta while on vacation she didn't want to use it because she thought so much about it but her father talked her in to using it and the turtle got lost at school. she became upset about it so Nana had to make it right we went to Tifton and bought her over here to the Sea turtle center it was a wonderful day the staff is so nice everything is well kept it is a very educational center. you know the people working there love their job because it shows in the love the have toward the turtles.

I thought the work they do at the Sea Turtle Center was interesting and worthwhile. The exhibits are fairly straight forward and geared towards smaller children, but informative nonetheless. Worth a look, but was just ok for me.

The Georgia Sea Turtle Center is well worth a visit, for kids or adults. This is what made me want to come to Jekyll Island, and I'm so glad I did. The center packs a ton of information into the displays in their exhibit room about the life of different sea turtle species and efforts to protect them. The best part is you can see in person how the center is helping. You can get a close up view into the exam room where they bring rescued turtles for treatment. They place a sign in the window that tells you the name of the turtle being examined and what is being done. You can also visit other recovering turtles and learn all about each one's injuries and treatment. Nice gift shop, too! If you have kids (or are a big kid) who love animals, don't miss this place.
