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
Executive Director

When Frontera—a Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle—arrived at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island in March 2021, she was extremely lethargic, had several fractures on her shell, and could not open her eyes. But her journey of recovery has been amazing in the last few months. Thanks to the dedication of the GSTC staff, donations for wound care products, and new equipment, including an x-ray machine, Frontera is on the mend!
