Support-Sponsorships

Our Sponsors

ARCHELON is a non-profit and non-governmental organisation. All funds raised are used exclusively to implement sea turtle conservation projects, which focus mainly on research, protection, management, public awareness, environmental education and lobbying. Over the course of time small businesses or large cooperates from the public or private sector have supported ARCHELON's work. Their vested inertest in nature conservation is a warrant for more achievements in the field of sea turtle conservation in the Mediterranean.

Become a sponsor

Over the past 27 years, the support we have received from responsible small or big companies has been a great boost to our work. Sponsorships in the form of either money or in kind have allowed us to carry out projects for the benefit of sea turtles and the natural environment in general.

In 2012, we have set the following priorities to which any kind contribution can make a difference:

  • Create access, touring and voluntary work facilities for people with disabilities at the Sea Turtle Rescue Centre in Glyfada
  • Supply of medical and paramedical material for the Rescue Centre.
  • Purchase of 2 cars for transporting the researchers of the Association during the programs of recording and protection of nests of Caretta, in the nesting areas.
  • Purchase of 5 laptop computers for equipping field programs in Zakynthos, Peloponnese and Crete.
  • Purchase of 2 video projectors, for the needs of the environmental education programs and public awareness.
  • Purchase of 4 satellite transmitters to track the movements of turtle nesting in Greece, with a view to uncover the unknown aspects of their lives and reduce the mortality of turtles in the sea.
  • Create a series of new publications and re-editions of information material, which will be available for updating the Greek and foreign visitors on all activity areas of ARCHELON.
  • In particular:
    • Educational posters
    • Bilingual booklets for the Rescue Center, Crete, Peloponnese and Zakynthos
