A must-see on Jekyll Island, this center aims to increase awareness of habitat and wildlife conservation challenges for the endangered loggerhead turtles through turtle rehabilitation, research, and education programs. The center includes educational exhibits and a "hospital," where visitors can view rescued turtles and read their stories. The loggerheads lay their eggs along Jekyll Island beaches from May through August.

Interesting and a good cause. Small exhibit area and "hospital" with turtles in pools being treated worth 30 minutes or so. If a school or other group is visiting the space is quickly packed and unpleasant, though.
