(Tybee Island, GA) The Discovery Shop is live! With The Discovery Shop, the Tybee Island Marine Science Center’s new online store, it’s easier for area residents and people all over the world to get toys, books, t-shirts, and jewelry. Purchases from The Discovery Shop help support the marine science center’s efforts.

“Offering folks a chance to shop online with The Discovery Shop has been a longtime goal of the center,” Maria Procopio, executive director of the marine science center said. “The Discovery Shop comes at a perfect time, as the new Tybee Island Marine Science Center nears completion.
