Turtle Rescue Centre

Over the last few years Earth, Sea & Sky have been raising funds through the SOS Turtle Rescue Appeal, alongside the Sea Life Centres, to builda Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Station in Zakynthos for swift rehabilitation and treatment to injured turtles. With no other such facility on the island of Zakynthos, and with more and more injured turtles every year, this is a crucial step towards securing the endangered Caretta Caretta turtles in Zakynthos a better future.

Works on the Rescue Station in Gerakas, Zante are being pushed towards completion for spring 2012. Once complete, volunteers will be needed year-round to operate the facilities. This will involve hands on work rescuing and rehabilitating injured turtles and other marine life, technical roles and daily maintenance of the facilities. Data gathered at the Rescue Station will benefit an international pool of knowledge to help all sea turtle species around the World.

The Turtle Rescue Station is nearing completion and will need volunteers year round
