Ambassadors' Programme: NEPHELE

"In Greek mythology Nephele, a nymph, relates to the story of Phrixus and his twin sister Helle. Being their natural mother, she saved them from the devious plot of their stepmother Ino, by sending a flying golden ram to their rescue that flew over the sea bringing them back home.

Phrixus and Helle were instructed to not look down to earth for the duration of their flight. Helle though, did look down, and fell off the ram into the Hellespont (which was named after her, meaning Sea of Helle) and drowned, but Phrixus survived all the way to Colchis, where in gratitude he gave the local king the golden fleece of the ram."

The Sea Turtle Protection Society launches in 2009 a special programme, named "NEPHELE" introducing a new global community of people, the community of ARCHELON Ambassadors!

The ARCHELON's Ambassador is an official messenger and representative of the Society in the country of his/her residency.

The Ambassadors are persons who have already had past voluntary experience working with ARCHELON in the nesting areas of Caretta-caretta sea turtles in Greece and share the concern for their protection and survival.

The main role of the Ambassador is to inform other young people about the need to support ARCHELON's important mission and also explain them how themselves can, by helping a leading non-governmental organization devoted to the protection and rescue of sea turtles, make an increasingly more positive impact in the world's endangered species for many years to come.

The Ambassadors' programme "Nephele" is designed to

  • increase the number of young people volunteering with ARCHELON from around the globe
  • help attract donations and raise funding for the summer field projects and the operation of the Rescue Center
  • maintain, expand and foster ARCHELON' s current network and partnerships with diverse communities and people, thus enhancing our impact and our performance for positive difference in the world.
