Title: 00036 St' Catherines Scientific Research Programs


1
00-036 St. Catherines Scientific Research
Programs
  • Interns are put into proximity of a variety of
    scientists studying various aspects of island
    ecology including entomology, botany, geology,
    ornithology, and ecology. A recent project on
    the Island was the relocation of Gopher Tortoises
    from a sand ridge at Statesboro.

2
00-037 St. Catherines Archaeology Program
  • Archaeological investigations of Native American
    interactions with the Spanish continued under
    sponsorship of the American Museum of Natural
    History. Archeological research continued to
    investigate the settlement pattern around the
    site of Mission Santa Catalina de Guale.

00-038. Wildlife on St. Catherines
  • Wildlife abounds on St. Catherines Island. It is
    important to recognize that the raccoons, deer,
    feral hogs, turkey and other animals are wild,
    and have the right of way at all times.
  • It is sometimes difficult to communicate the
    hazards of approaching large wild animals to
    people unused to interacting with wild animals.
    One should not approach an alligator too closely
    especially if an alligator nest is nearby!

4
00-039. Wildlife Survival Center
  • Captive breeding programs of the Wildlife
    Survival Center continued under sponsorship of
    the New York Zoological Society leadership. Sea
    turtle interns were hosted on numerous tours by
    WSC staff members.
  • Popular endangered exotics included Ring Tailed
    Lemurs, Roughed Lemurs, and Macaque Monkeys.

5
00-040. Button Gwinett House
  • Historical aspects of St. Catherines Island
    enjoyed by interns included tours of the Button
    Gwinett House. This house was occupied by Button
    Gwinett, a signer of the Declaration of
    Independence.

6
00-041. South Plantation Cabin
  • Visitation of South Settlement Plantation
    features photogenic slave cabins and tours of the
    Spanish Mission, Santa Catalina de Guale.
