Enthusiastic and committed volunteers are needed to help sea turtles by participating in ARCHELON's projects in Greece. The projects address a range of sea turtle conservation issues and take place in the following locations:
- The nesting beaches of the loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta), on Zakynthos island, the Peloponnese and Crete. You will be monitoring the nesting activity, protecting nests and hatchlings and contributing to public awareness actions in the major breeding sites in Greece and the Mediterranean.
- The Sea Turtle Rescue Centre in Glyfada (a suburb of Athens), on the sea side. You will be participating in the daily operations of the Centre, which is receiving injured and sick sea turtles from all over Greece for treatment and rehabilitation. Fully recovered animals are released back to the wild.
- The shallow waters of Amvrakikos Bay and the beaches near Preveza, in northwestern Greece.
