 Thank you for being a volunteer and giving the most precious gift of all – your time and love for the Caretta caretta
10/09/2012
When I think back to 2008, when I first heard about ARCHELON, I never could have imagined the journey I would take to get to where I am today. The one thing I have learned above all else is that you must always believe in people and their ability to make a difference in this ever-changing world.

  try to save an endangered species, whose biggest enemy is so often the human beings...

ARCHELON has taken part in the European Voluntary Service (EVS) for many years. During the summer of 2012 we had the chance to host three great persons to our field projects in Zakyntho and Rethymno.

 Adopt a stray from Laganas Bay!
27/08/2012
To address the problem of increasing number of stray dogs in the area, ARCHELON and the Management Agent of the National Marine Park of Zakynthos started a new mission with the local Animal Welfare Organization. With the help of the local Animal Welfare Organization the stray dogs of Laganas Bay will get adopted and will find a home!

 Why are we coming back to ARCHELON every year…
16/08/2012
The motivation of conserving the reproductive environment of the loggerhead sea turtle remains strong but no lies here, someone must have found more things that keep him coming back to ARCHELON for 6 years and make him have the same enthusiasm with the first time. So, why are we coming back every year?

It has been so many years that ARCHELON operates as a hosting organisation of EVS (European Voluntary Service).

We would like to present now the EVS volunteers currently hosted to the Sea Turtle Rescue Center. Three amazing girls from Estonia, Ireland and Sweden. It is great to share their stories with us.

 Long-term protection gives fruit
03/07/2012
With the protection measures applied by ARCHELON since 1992, destruction of eggs has been reduced to about 15%. Further, the increase of newly matured turtles in southern Kyparissia Bay coincides with the maturation age of sea turtles which according to recent studies starts at 14 years.

 The rehabilitation and release of “kifissia”
27/06/2012
Weve known her since 19 June 2007 when she was marked by ARCHELON with tag KA825, after her nesting, in southern Kyparissia Bay. On 14 August 2011 we were notified by Giorgio Cataldini that our turtle was found injured in Italy at the island Sant Andrea, close to Gallipoli with a large injury from a propeller at the back of her shell. After several months of treatment at “Turtle Point” in Naples, “Kifissia” was much better and it was decided to be released at the place where it was found injured, on 7 June 2012.
