I volunteered for Earth, Sea & Sky for four weeks during the Summer of 2014. I decided to volunteer with this amazing organization because I have a passion for conservation and sea turtles. During my time in Zakynthos and with Earth, Sea & Sky I gained an appreciation for the Greek culture, made many friends from all over the world and learned how an NGO operates.
Yannis and Jonna set an amazing example of how to educate locals and tourists on environmental issues and instilled a sense of urgency in me to make a difference. Volunteering at Earth, Sea and Sky gave me the skills I needed to be hired by a non-profit in the United States. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to volunteer with Earth, Sea and Sky and further my passion for sea turtles and the environment around like-minded people.
