Join the Staff and Board of Caretta Research Project for a fun-filled evening to celebrate 46 years of sea turtle conservation on Wassaw Island. There will be live music, delicious food and beverages, and a silent auction filled with beautiful artwork, diverse gift certificates and exciting experiences.

Under the live oaks and Spanish moss of Isle of Hope, we will cheers to the project's past success and help support it into the future. All proceeds from this event go directly to helping CRP accomplish its mission of preserving loggerhead sea turtles on the coast of Georgia for years to come.

Please share this announcement on social media with all of your friends and family. The more the merrier!
