The Tybee Island Marine Science Center is a community-based organization that aims to cultivate, inform, educate, and preserve coastal Georgia’s natural resources through education, conservation, and research. The center boasts a variety of exhibits that feature local species of fish, reptiles, and invertebrates from Georgia, as well as a plethora of information on marine mammals like sharks, sea turtles, and various shells from around the world.
A tactile touch tank offers children the opportunity to feel different marine animals and plants, and several educational programs such as Walks, Talks and Treks are available for island visitors, school groups, girl and boy scouts.
