Greece Turtle Conservation
Greece provides a blend of a hot Mediterranean climate, fascinating ancient culture, and seas teeming with marine life. Enjoy the chance to immerse yourself in this fabulous culture whilst living close to the beautiful sandy beaches and helping to protect one of Greece’s most charismatic sea creatures, the loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta in Greek)
On this project you'll live and work with other enthusiastic and energetic international volunteers to conserve and protect one of the most important loggerhead turtle nesting areas in Kefalonia, Greece.
You will conduct daily monitoring surveys each morning to record nesting activity and help to protect turtle nests against predation by mammals and inundation by sea water. In addition to this, volunteers will conduct field surveys on nesting beaches to locate and protect new nests. At night you will help to survey, tag and measure nesting turtles and record beach characteristics and light pollution levels.
You will receive practical training on the job from local staff, and have the opportunity to help safeguard Greece’s vulnerable sea turtles and exceptional habitats for future generations.
