Knobbed Whelk, Busycon carica by Amy Edwards
The Georgia Shell Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to the appreciation of all aspects of the science and beauty of seashells. We have members at all levels of interest and expertise: from children and novices to professionals and dealers, scientists, crafters, dabblers, artists, and just plain folks.
The club no longer holds regularly scheduled meetings or publishes the Whelk Wavelength newsletter. For articles from past issues please see the online index.
Our Objective is to encourage and dispense knowledge and to cultivate interest in the conservation, history, science, and beauty of Seashells.
The Whelk Wavelength was a monthly newsletter published by the Georgia Shell Club, Inc. Although no longer published, an index and collection of articles from the Whelk Wavelength, spanning the period from 1990 to 1998, is available online. We also offer a search engine so that you can search for articles with any word or phrase.
About the Logo Shell: Our logo shell is the Knobbed Whelk, Busycon carica. It is a common species found from Massachusetts to N.E. Florida. The Georgia Shell Club was instrumental in having the Georgia State Legislature declare the Knobbed Whelk the official state shell of Georgia.
To learn more about the Knobbed Whelk see our Whelk Page.

We have a growing list of shell-related links (Last updated February 17, 1997). That page includes the search forms for the most common Internet search engines right on the page.
Take a look at our new list of shell and mollusc image sites!
Seashell Photos: Here's a loosely formatted collection of seashell photographs. The images are in a table format, and the whole page should take approximately two minutes to load on a good 14.4 connection.
The Georgia Shell Club in action! Here's an image of one of the club's outings(38K jpeg), shelling at Wassaw Island, off the coast of Georgia, near Savannah.
