Last week, our Diamondback Terrapin AmeriCorps member, Micheal, found this terrapin sitting on the side of the road. When he went to grab her he found she was digging her nest on top of a fire ant mound (ouch!), and fire ants were swarming her entire body but she didn't seem to mind. Here's the fire ant lady after she laid her nest on the fire ant mound.

On Saturday, June 1st, the Georgia Sea Turtle Center released 14 diamondback terrapin hatchlings that were wintered at the GSTC. All of the hatchlings came from either dead or injured females from the causeway last year. The incubators were kept at a higher temperature to produce all female hatchlings. They currently have 5 on display in the center, with the rest roaming around the marsh. The release went well and we are hoping the best for them!

We’re Looking for a Few Good Shots.

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!

Thanks,

Dion Davis
