Our collaboration with SeaLife Centres UK began back in 2000, when Yannis rescued 3 severely injured turtles, too badly hurt to be returned to the wild, and relocated them to the Sea Life Centre in Weymouth where they were nursed back to health. Since then Sea Life have been an amazing support to us here at Earth, Sea & Sky, and we are so thankful for all the help and time they’ve given us, and the Loggerhead Sea Turtles of Zakynthos.
In 2006, together with Sea Life Centres UK, we launched our SOS Appeal throughout the UK and Europe. So far they have helped us raise over €150,000, an incredible amount that enabled us to build our current centre. We still need to raise another €100,000 to make Earth, Sea & Sky a functioning Rescue & Rehabilitation Centre. If you would like to donate to our cause, you can do so here.
We have recently started a collaboration with Loggerhead Marinelife Center, a fantastic organisation located in Florida. Their centre has come so far in the past thirty years, and we can’t wait to see how this partnership develops.
Tommy Cutt from the LMC visited us in April 2015, and you can read about his experience at our centre in Zakynthos here.
