Wild Amelia and the Georgia Sea Turtle Center will partner to kick off the 13th annual Wild Amelia Nature Festival on Friday, May 17, at 11am at Main Beach with the release of one or more rehabilitated green sea turtles. The release will occur at mid-tide and is dependent on weather and the health of the turtles. All are welcome to attend this heart-warming event.

The release will begin the three-day Wild Amelia Nature Festival from May 17-19 at venues on and around Amelia Island. Ecotours, exhibits for adults and children, a Silent Auction, fundraiser sunset cruise, music, food, and more are all a part of the Festival. For more information, please visit WildAmelia.org and Wild Amelia on Facebook.
