First aid care for sea turtles

The Cyclades Preservation Fund is pleased to keep supporting the Naxos Association for the Protection of Wildlife doing a great work, by creating new promotional material, enabling educational trips and field visits to other areas aiming to meet fishermen and students and raise awareness about wildlife and recently by funding a new big tank suitable for sea turtles that has been placed in the first aid care center of the Association.

This is a project supported by the Cyclades Preservation Fund.


Watch the moving story of NIREAS, the Loggerhead Turtle found seriously injured on Paros Island. Through the intensive care he received from our local partners at Naxos Wildlife Protection‘s station for 5 months, in the special rescue tank donated by the CPF, he completed his treatment successfully and recently returned to his natural environment!
