The Georgia Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island, GA is a special place. Rescued sea turtles and their relative species are sent here for rehabilitation after injury, usually by the hand of us humans. Golden Isles Magazine chose to cover this inspiring facility for its lead story this month and grace the cover with one of its patients.
I was able to photograph and observe treatments to one of the turtles, including the use of honey in the healing process, visitors seeing the turtles up close and the facility’s other behind the scenes areas.
Enjoy the tearsheets below.
