Description

This project aims to protect and preserve the vulnerable baby sea turtles that hatch on the beaches of Greece. The project runs from June to September and closely follows, monitors, and protects the nesting season of the Loggerhead sea turtle to ensure the maximum success rate of turtle hatchlings.

Your specific duties as a volunteer will vary from month to month throughout the season. May/ June: the work focuses on identifying new nests, and protecting them from any environmental hazards. July/August: this is hatching season so the work involves monitoring and recording the hatchlings from each nest. September: may see the end of hatching season, but the focus will be on nest excavations to study the success rate of each nest.
