Protecting an old friend

8. Taking care of loggerhead (Caretta caretta) sea turtles. The Archelon society is organizing volunteer activities on Zakynthos where the National Marine Park for the protection of the loggerhead turtles in the Mediterranean is located. Similar projects are being run in the Peloponnese (at Kyparissia, Koroni and Laconiko) and on Crete (Rethymnon, Hania and the Messara Gulf). The minimum participation period is 10 days (the project will run until end of October) and the cost is 50 euros. Archelon advises interested volunteers to bring a tent and anything else that will make their stay at their camps more comfortable. For information, contact the organization’s program manager: Aliki Panagopoulou, tel 210.523.1342, e-mail stps@archelon, website
