A rave review about volunteering opportunities with Eearth, Sea & Sky Global

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.”
