Sea turtles in the Rescue Centre

The Sea Turtle Rescue Centre has been operating since 1994 in Glyfada, Attica, by the waterfront. It was founded by ARCHELON with the support of the Municipality of Glyfada and the Ministry of Environment and is one of the first Sea Turtle Rescue Centers in the Mediterranean. Its purpose is to treat injured and sick sea turtles and eventually release them back into the sea. You can adopt an injured/ sick sea turtle at the Recsue Centre and contribute to it's treatment and feeding costs. And of course you are welcome to come and visit it at the Rescue Centre or get updated from our webpage about it's progress and release back to the sea.
