Title Sapelo Island Research Request Form
Archive All Files / Other Files / Forms / Research Planning

We're pleased that you are interested in conducting research on Sapelo Island. UGAMI, the GCE-LTER, the Sapelo Island NERR and Georgia DNR are all interested in fostering scientific research on the island, and have collaborated to put together this application and guidelines. Most projects will be approved and managed internally by one of these organizations (your "sponsor"), but projects raising special concerns will be evaluated by a committee with representatives from all four organizations.

We need to make sure that research on the island is consistent with our guidelines. To accomplish this, we need you to fill out a simple application form. We also need to track research projects, including information on locations and funding. To accomplish this, once a project is approved, we need you to fill out annual reports until the project is officially "closed", with all materials removed from the site and the site recovered from any disturbance.
