Jekyll Island

On our fourth day of vacation, we drove half an hour south to Jekyll Island and the weather was perfect. Sunshiny and breezy! There were a group of students fishing for different water animals and the boys were very curious to learn about the animals, too. We also visited the Sea Turtle Rehabilitation and Hospital. The rescued sea turtles were injured from propellers, cars, dehydration and/or malnutrition. Velcro-ed weights on their shells were used for diving therapy because without their ability to dive, turtles cannot find food and starve to death :(
