A new publication from the U.S. Government Printing Office highlights the renovation of the Jekyll Island Historical Power Plant into the Georgia Sea Turtle Center.

"Georgia Sea Turtle Center"

The Georgia Sea Turtle Center is located in the renovated Jekyll Island Historic Power Plant.

Funded by grants from the Environmental Protection Agency and partnerships among the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation, the Jekyll Island Authority,  and the Jekyll Island Foundation, the cleanup and restoration of the former power plant made the building safe and efficient for modern uses.

If you’re planning to visit the Sea Turtle Center sometime, it’ll host a special visitor on December 17th.

Couldn’t think of a more appropriate use of this historic building. The sea turtle program is one of the very best implemented on Jekyll Island. The Georgia Sea Turtle Center serves a critical purpose protecting sea turtle and terrapin species on the island, rehabbing sick and injured turtles, monitoring and recording nest sites, and educating the public about our flippered friends.

Hope you all can visit the Georgia Sea Turtle Center soon – and take a kid. It’s a fun experience.
