ARCHELON, the Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece
Become a Volunteer

Enthusiastic and committed volunteers are required for demanding sea turtle conservation projects run by ARCHELON in Greece. Zakynthos, Peloponnesus, and Crete are major nesting areas for the Mediterranean's loggerhead (Caretta caretta) turtle and have been monitored by ARCHELON, a non-profit making organization, for 20 years. In Athens, ARCHELON also runs the only Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Centre in Greece. Volunteers are invited to work on the island of Zakynthos, where the first National Marine Park for sea turtles in the Mediterranean was established in 1999, and assist the Management Body of the Park in protecting the nesting beaches. In Peloponnesus, volunteers will protect nests from foxes and other mammals, experience the pilot project of sand dune restoration, help maintain nature trails, and run the Nature Information Centres. On the island of Crete, participants will work on implementing a Management Plan for the nesting areas. At the Sea Turtle Rescue Centre, volunteers will have the opportunity to assist our staff in the daily treatment of sea turtles that suffer from accidental and deliberate injuries.

This volunteer program gives you the chance to live in the beautiful Bay of Lakonikos in the southern Peloponnese, while working with a team of international volunteers to conserve and protect one of the most important loggerhead turtle nesting areas in Greece.
Your team will perform surveys every morning to record nesting activity and protect turtle nests against predation by mammals and inundation by sea water. Volunteers also provide important conservation information to overseas visitors and the local community. Opportunities exist for you to explore the fascinating Greek culture and to enjoy the sights of the surrounding local area in your free time.
