TYBEE ISLAND, Ga. (WSAV) – From marine habitats to salty marshes, Georgia’s unique geography is teeming with wildlife. Tybee Island’s Marine Science Center said conservation is crucial to teach at a young age in order to protect both the animals and people who live by the coast.

The Marine Center’s “Sea Camp” program offers education and exploration opportunities to kids between the ages of six and 12. The Program Director told WSAV, respecting local wildlife is something she believes needs to be fostered when people are young in order to facilitate lifelong understanding and mindfulness.

Studying sea critters, understanding how trash impacts animals and the ocean, and replacing fear with facts are just some of the things the program teachers. With a lot of people seeking outdoor activities to try to social distance, the Marine Science Center staff said there are a lot of people not picking up after themselves and leaving trash on the beach.

Beth Palmer, the Tybee Island Marine Science Center’s Program Director, said early education can create lifelong respect—giving kids the opportunity to lead by example.

“We love reaching young kids so they can continue to be reached throughout their lives, and become closure to nature, learn to love it not be afraid of all of the weird animals that are out here, and more likely to protect it. I remember as a kid learning about a lot of this stuff and I still think about that,” Palmer said.

The camp is following CDC safety guidelines, Gov. Brian Kemp’s executive order, and recommendations from the American Camp Association. The program runs Monday through Friday and their last sessions will be held July 27th – 31st.

The Tybee Island Marine Science Center finished construction on their brand new building on North Beach. Palmer said they don’t have an opening date—citing safety concerns for the delay. She said they are working on transferring over their exhibits.

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) – With more large gatherings allowed to take place soon in Georgia, some popular events are beginning to look towards the fall.

With large gatherings being banned due to COVID-19, the city had to stop giving out event permits. Throughout the last few weeks, they have been able to allow small parties to get together. But festivals and other events are expected to make a comeback soon.

Savannah’s Office of Special Events, Film, and Tourism are beginning to hear from event organizers.

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp’s latest executive order says starting on June 16, gatherings must be limited to 50 people unless they are able to be 6 feet apart. Because of this, the Office of Special Events, Film, and Tourism cannot issue permits for events larger than that right now. However, the Director of Special Events for the City of Savannah, Susan Broker, says they are having discussions with some of their “legacy event” organizers about the future. These are the events that take place in Savannah every year, like the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon.

Broker says, at this time, several legacy events have made it known that they plan to hold their events this year. One of those being the Savannah Food & Wine Festival. Organizers for the festival recently announced that they plan to hold their week of events beginning on Nov. 9, and they do plan to take precautions against COVID-19. The official dates are Nov. 9-15, 2020.

Organizers say they have several plans in place, so they’re ready to accommodate whatever the state health guidelines may be at the time. The festival’s main event is always the Taste of Savannah. Organizers say the biggest change you will see this year is the way you purchase your food items. In the past, a festivalgoer would purchase tickets and then redeem those tickets. In hopes of remaining contactless, the festival plans to use special bracelets this year. Tickets will be uploaded to the bracelets and then all they’ll have to do is scan their bracelets at the booths.

The Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon and the Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon & 5K are also expected to return this year.

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) – The city of Savannah says at least 20 restaurants are now offering more outside dining thanks to a new pilot program.

With businesses having to limit their indoor capacity, some are still losing much-needed revenue, and the city hopes to help them by offering this new permit.

Several parking spots along Broughton Street are being blocked by orange cones to allow restaurants to place tables and chairs there to allow for more outside dining. Restaurants are required to remove the tables and chairs every night before they close.

But as we know, downtown parking can sometimes be difficult.

“We recognize that changes like this have impacts on surrounding neighborhoods and other businesses in the area, so we want to make sure we limit those impacts as much as possible,” said Manny Dominguez, Economic Development Director for the City of Savannah.

This new permit is available citywide so restaurants in Midtown and on the Southside can take advantage of it as well.

In anticipation of summer travel, American Airlines will be increasing its weekly and weekend flights to Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport starting in July, the airline announced Thursday, June 4.

Starting next month the airline will have 17 flights Monday through Friday and 16 flights during the weekend to Savannah.

Currently the airline flies an average of 12 times per week from hubs in Charlotte, North Carolina; Arlington, Virginia; Dallas, Texas; Miami, Florida; Chicago, Illinois, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Savannah Airport Commission Executive Director Greg Kelly said flight schedules have grown over the past few weeks and are expected to grow throughout the summer, along with daily travelers.

“The Savannah/Hilton Head region has been open for over a month now and visitors have been returning in large numbers,” he said.

“Our passenger counts at SAV have been growing as travelers seem to be more comfortable with returning to the air. We appreciate American’s recognition of this in our market, and look forward to the increased service they have announced.”

Overall American Airlines is expecting to fly 55% of its domestic schedule and nearly 20% of its international schedule in July 2020 compared to the same period last year.

“We’re seeing a slow but steady rise in domestic demand. After a careful review of data, we’ve built a July schedule to match,” Vasu Raja, American’s senior vice president of network strategy, said in a release.

“Our July schedule includes the smallest year-over-year capacity reduction since March. We’ll continue to look for prudent opportunities to restore service so our customers can travel whenever and wherever they are ready.”
