Savannah CASA
Savannah CASA
Savannah/Chatham County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) recruits and trains volunteers to advocate for the best interests of children who have experienced abuse and neglect. 

CASA takes a holistic approach to ensure the child’s psychological, physical, educational, and other needs are met while advocating for permanency in the child’s life. CASA volunteers work tirelessly to reduce the amount of time a child spends in foster care by working closely with the Department of Family and Children Services and the Juvenile Court. Studies have shown that a child who is appointed a CASA volunteer spends less time in foster care, has fewer placement disruptions, and performs better in school.

Our vision is a community where every child who has experienced abuse or neglect is given the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home.

Georgia's Loggerhead Sea Turtles

The Caretta Research Project (CRP) is a hands-on research, conservation, and education project that studies and protects the threatened loggerhead sea turtles that nest on the beaches of Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge, Georgia. It begain in 1973, and continues toda as the longest continuously run tagging program in the United States. The CRP is also an "eco-vacation," where the public can join us on Wassaw Island for one-week sessions between May and early September, researching and protecting the loggerhead sea turtles. 

Kris will talk about the different species of sea turtles that we have encountered along the Georgia coast and reasons for their historic decline, recent recovery efforts, and walk you through a field season on Wassaw to show how the CRP is helping to save Georgia's loggerhead sea turtle population.
