|Support of ARCHELON sea travel expenses from MINOAN LINES for the program in Southern Crete - 29/02/2012|
|Our cooperation with MINOAN LINES started a few years ago when the company had made a 2-year funding of the ARCHELON program in Messara, located in Heraklion. The program included (and still includes) protection measures, research, awareness and rescue of the sea turtle Caretta caretta, in the important breeding habitats of the Messara Gulf.|
The Ferry Company of Crete «MINOAN LINES» continues to support us with different but equally important ways. As part of its sponsorship program, it has offered discount tickets to our Society, facilitating the annual transportation of ARCHELON executives to and from the program in Southern Crete. Thereby demonstrated how the economic crisis affecting all businesses, did not alter the philosophy of Corporate Social Responsibility which has been adopted, thus contributing to our work in protecting the sea turtles and their breeding habitats in Southern Crete.
Fortunately, other maritime companies have also offered us discounts on their services, creating favorable mobility conditions for the programs of ARCHELON.
MINOAN LINES is one of them and we would like to express our warmest appreciation!
MINOAN LINES is a leading Greek shipping company with an ultramodern fleet which connects ports and people every day with safety, comfort and luxury, with a view to establishing leadership, quality, dynamism and respect for the environment.
We wish MINOAN LINES, that this New Year shall be the beginning of a series of positive events, achievements and progress. In addition, we hope for other companies to follow its example by contributing to the continuation of our work in taking care of sea turtles all over Greece.
