Good Day Atlanta Viewer Information: August 24, 2015

- Good Day Atlanta Discovers The Coast: Labor Day is coming soon, which many consider the unofficial end of summer.  But we're not ready to let go just yet -- so we decided to spend this week exploring the incredible scenery and beaches of Georgia's coast.  Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken and photojournalist Blaze Meier went on a road trip from Atlanta to the Golden Isles to Savannah, and brought back a collection of stories showcasing some of the region's treasures.

It's day one of the road trip, and Paul and Blaze start the week off at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center.  Opened in 2007 by Dr. Terry Norton and the Jekyll Island Authority, the Center is a hospital for sick and injured sea turtles, where the animals are rehabilitated with the hopes of releasing them back into the ocean.  It's also open to tourists, with the purpose of educating visitors about this unique animals.  A large exhibit gallery features interactive stations that education guests about sea turtles, and the rehabilitation pavilion offers a look at the animals currently in-treatment at the Center.  Right now, the Center is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. -- for more information, click here.
