Take a 'cold-stunned' plunge into the chilly Atlantic in support of sea turtles on the Georgia coast! Join us for the newest fun, and a little frigid, fundraising event for the Jekyll Island Authority's Georgia Sea Turtle Center. Many sea turtles get caught in hypothermic water temperatures during the winter months, and your support will assist with cold-stun rehabilitation and recovery. Take the plunge and raise some funds!
