Description

The Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece works at the conservation of sea turtles and their habitats in Greece. Main activities are monitoring and research, rescue and rehabilitation of sick and injured turtles and raising public awareness. They run many volunteer programmes, all with the purpose of ensuring the sea turtles are treated correctly, and that injured turtles are released back to the sea as soon as they are better. The Sea Turtle Rescue Center is in Glyfada Attikis and 8 other Sea Turtle Conservation Projects are on Zakynthos, Kyparissia Bay, Crete, south Peloponnese, Amvrakikos, working with the support of volunteers, since 1983.
