Turtles or tourists? We can all live together.
This year, ARCHELON celebrates 35 years of contribution to sea turtle conservation. We hope that sea turtles will safely continue their travels and that, humans and turtles, we can all live together, in the years to come.
Upon completion of the relocation of a nest detected very near the sea on Kalamaki Beach by the ARCHELON volunteers a few hours earlier, the scheduled release of sea turtle named "Hermione” was held as planned on Monday, 4 June 2018.
The Management Agency of Kotuchi-Strofilia and Kyparissia Gulf, ARCHELON, MEDASSET and WWF Hellas call for the adoption of measures for the permanent, official protection of the Kyparissia Gulf area after the recent violations which took place there.
On Wednesday, May 16th 2018, the annual reunion of services and actors on the most effective management of the Caretta caretta sea turtle reproduction habitat was realised, for the fourth time, at the beaches of Rethymno Gulf.
ARCHELON, acknowledging the great, worldwide problem of litter both on land and sea, participates every year with the aim to sensitize the public, raise awareness and contribute to the preservation of the environment.
