P1080324

We are currently gathering signatures for a petition calling for an immediate review and amendment of the existing legislation regarding the protection of the natural flora and fauna of Zakynthos. We believe that the National Marine Park of Zakynthos are not doing their job properly; they consistently violate protocol that has been put in place to protect the wildlife of the island. We have tried to communicate with them on numerous occasions, but they remain insensitive to the repercussions of this crisis, and do not respond to calls to act upon and reverse the process of degradation of the most important sea turtle nesting habitat in the Mediterranean.

Although we do all we can to protect the natural habitats of the island, we have no authority, which is why we need your help. We need your support to make sure that current laws are enforced, and further legislation is introduced to protect this critically endangered species.

Please sign our petition here.

The loggerhead turtle in its natural habitat, Zakynthos

Click the Link below to have a read of Angie Aspinall’s account of volunteer Eco-tourism holidays with us in Zakynthos, Greece. She describes her personal highlight:

“Holiday highlight? For me, the holiday highlight has to be helping to rescue turtle hatchlings from a blocked nest. Without the help of Earth, Sea & Sky staff and volunteers, none of the hatchlings in the nest would have survived but, by monitoring the nests and knowing when there’s a problem (such as a blockage), team members are able to excavate the nests (sticking to strict guidelines). So, early one morning, we watched the excavation of a nest. There were 50 dead hatchlings and their bodies were stopping their siblings from being able to scramble out of the nest. With a little help – from surgically gloved hands – we were able to ensure that 20 to 30 of the strongest hatchlings made their epic journey from nest to sea. It was one of those life-affirming moments that stay with you forever and a memory which ‘makes’ a holiday.”

The baby turtle hatchlings swim off into the sea

Often our Earth, Sea & Sky Global volunteers are able to watch the baby hatchlings as they make their first journey from their nests into the sea. We check the nests after the eggs have hatched for any babies that have not hatched on time and monitor the success of the hatchlings for record purposes. This is an amazing experience to watch the sunrise and the hundreds of turtle hatchlings quietly make their way into the Ionian Sea.
