Who We Are
The Caretta Research Project is a hands on research, conservation and education project that has been protecting loggerhead sea turtles on Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge since 1973.
THREE GOALS OF THE PROJECT
Each year, for 17 weeks during the summer, groups of volunteers, ages 15 and up, travel to the beaches of Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge near Savannah, Georgia to help monitor egg-laying and hatching activity and to collect data on the loggerhead turtles.
Here is an opportunity for YOU to experience the thrill of helping a threatened species! Application and Waiver Available Weeks
If you are 18 or under, you and your parent or guardian must also sign and submit this Young Biologist form, in addition to the above application and waiver, to ensure that you understand and accept your responsibilities as part of the CRP field team.
PLEASE CALL 912-704-9323 TO MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS. MY CELL WILL BE TURNED OFF!
Early Registration: Begins in Monday, December 12th at 8 am and ends Friday December 23rd at 5 pm. The cost is $945/person/week. This is the best strategy to use if your availability is very limited, as weeks fill up very quickly once January registration opens.
Regular Registration: Opens on Monday, January 2nd at 8 am. The cost is $795/person/week. Calls and messages left 8 am or later are given first priority, so please don't leave messages earlier!
When you call to apply for a week, please leave one message with your name, phone number, number of spots requested and your first, second and third (a 4th is recommended as well-we fill quickly!) choices of weeks. Then please send an e-mail to WassawCRP@aol.com with the same information.
