The Caretta Research Project (CRP) is a hands-on research, conservation and education program dedicated to studying and protecting loggerhead sea turtles on Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge. In the 1960-70's, Georgia’s loggerheads faced many threats, leading to population declines. Savannah Science Museum, US Fish and Wildlife Service and Wassaw Island Trust recognized this decline and initiated the CRP.
The CRP is the longest continuously-run sea turtle tagging project in the US, and it is the only project in this country that invites the public to work beside biologists to help protect these magnificent animals.
Over the last 50 years, the CRP has celebrated much success due to our conservation efforts on Wassaw. These include:
Please join us in celebrating 50 years of sea turtle research and conservation at our Annual Sea Turtle Celebration and Fundraiser, A Night on the Bluff.
