Turtle Nesting in Georgia

The endangered loggerhead sea turtle nests in several wildlife refuges on the Georgia Coast. We are partnering with the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Caretta Project to survey these nesting areas to better understand the needs of both adults and offspring, and how to protect them. 

Health and Nutritional Evaluation of Sharks in Human Care and Free-Ranging Sharks off the Coast of Georgia
Little is known about nutrition in sharks.  This project focused on what standard blood levels are for vitamins and minerals in sharks, focusing on the sharpnose and bonnethead sharks in Georgia waters. This information helped Georgia Aquarium understand how to better meet the nutritional needs of sharks in our collection.
