SEA TURTLE

Sea turtles in the Rescue Centre

The Sea Turtle Rescue Centre has been operating since 1994 in Glyfada, Attica, by the waterfront. It was founded by ARCHELON with the support of the Municipality of Glyfada and the Ministry of Environment and is one of the first Sea Turtle Rescue Centers in the Mediterranean. Its purpose is to treat injured and sick sea turtles and eventually release them back into the sea. More
