|Facility:||St. Catherines Island Center|
|Description:||St.Catherine's Island, one of Coastal Georgia's golden isles, lies about fifty miles south of Savannah. It is one of the few remaining islands untouched by condos and fast-food chains. St.Catherines' is owned and regulated by the Georgia based non-profit organization, St.Catherines Island Foundation. Magnificent views of St. catherines are available by motorboat. Driftwood lines the wild, white beaches. The area abounds with wildlife and is seeped with European history.
During daylight hours, the public is allowed to use the beach for hiking, picnicking, or shelling to the high-tide line. However, the interior of the island is off-limits to the public without permission.
This is also Wildlife Conservation Society's off-site breeding and research facility. The mission is to work with threatened and endangered species that do not do well in a traditional zoo setting. The Center also tests and researches release and relocation techniques.
