The Aegean Wildlife Hospital treats and rehabilitates hundreds of injured wild animals found in the region and encourages the protection of the fauna through Environmental Education. They are doing an excellent work and we are all grateful for their hard work to protect the wildlife all these years. They measure success more in terms of effective treatment and release of his small patients – the Hospital has an overall release rate of at least 60% and the animals and birds are always released to their natural environment or on migratory routes.
Alkyone is an accredited member of the European Wildlife Association while the number of awards that have been given to the Alkyoni reflect and highlight the immeasurable value of the work that has been done. All the work is carried out by volunteers and running costs are covered by donations of friends and members, fundraising and sponsorship.
