The Dolphin Project will be the focus of the April CCA of Skidaway meeting and seminar to be held on Monday, April 8, at St. Peter’s Church beginning at 7:00 pm. Peach Hubbard, President of The Dolphin Project, will speak about the environment, anatomy, biology and unique behaviors of our area’s residential dolphins, as well as the threats they face. The Dolphin Project is an all-volunteer, non-profit, research, conservation, and education organization working since 1989 for the protection of wild estuarine Bottlenose dolphins on the coasts of Georgia and lower South Carolina. Project volunteers conduct Photo-ID research surveys with a special government permit to collect data about local dolphins and collaborate with marine scientists in the Southeast United States in order to protect these amazing creatures. Peach Hubbard, a resident of Richmond Hill, Georgia, is a University of Georgia Master Coastal Naturalist and has served as an ecology tour guide to Georgia’s barrier Islands. Peach is painter, photographer and sculptor and serves on the board of Arts on the Coast. She is also a director on the board of Richmond Hill Historical Society and designed the displays in the Richmond Hill Henry Ford Museum. Peach loves her family, friends, fishing and traveling, especially in the United States. She and her husband and two dogs completed a three month trip to Alaska last summer pulling their Travel Trailer. An inshore fishing charter for two will be offered as the very special raffle prize at the April meeting. CCA is a non-profit organization with chapters on the Atlantic, Pacific, and Gulf Coasts.
