Sea Turtle Conservation

4.800€ awarded

Great news! The nationwide expert NGO Archelon will travel to the Cyclades to provide the local Naxos Association for the Wildlife Protection with the necessary capacity and tools in order to maintain and increase the respective populations and to provide biological data from which we can have a better understanding of the turtles’ ecology and population status in the years to come. Monitoring of stranding to gain a better understanding of the threats the sea turtles in Naxos and around face, is also an important objective of this grant supported by the CPF.

The one year project started in October 2018 includes, among other, a satellite transmitter placement on a suitable size turtle, training in tracking and protecting nests, scheduling patrols and alert signs, informative boards for the visitors.
