About This Activity
Turtle Crawl was created in 2003 as a fundraiser for theGeorgia Sea Turtle Center (GSTC) to support its mission of sea turtle research, rehabilitation, and education. In more than a decade of operation, the Georgia Sea Turtle Center has provided care for more than 3,000 patients, including a variety of sea turtle species and other coastal wildlife.
Set on Jekyll Island’s picturesque oceanfront and maritime forest, Turtle Crawl participants have raised more than $100,000 to help save sea turtles. These races are fast, flat, and a fun way to support the efforts of the Georgia Sea Turtle Center. We sincerely appreciate your support for this event and GSTC, and hope you’ll join us for Turtle Crawl in 2020.
Registration is now open, and we are looking forward to a wonderful day of races and saving turtles.
