Volunteer with the Caretta Research Project in 2018!
Here is an opportunity for YOU to experience the thrill of helping a threatened species! 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.
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. If spending a week on a remote barrier island in extremely rustic conditions while collecting data on the nesting loggerhead sea turtles sounds like a good time to you, here's how you sign up!
