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:
CRP’sannual fundraiser will be hosted at the charming home of Dr. and Mrs. Juha Jaakkola on Savannah’s beautiful Isle ofHope. This is an al fresco event, casual and comfortable, with liveentertainment, libations, Big Bon Pizza and an exclusive silent auction.
On behalf of the staff and Board of Directors, we hope you will join us in celebrating CRP’s successful conservation efforts!
Hope to see you on the Bluff!
