THE MOST SPECIAL PRESENTS
This year's festivities will be unforgettable for many reasons. Let us add to them at least one reason that will fill us with joy every time we think of it: an adoption at ARCHELON. An original present with special value and strong symbolism.
We live in a difficult time, whereby we all review, adapt and single out what is important in our lives. What does it mean for us that an average of 11 pieces of plastic were found in the digestive system of most sea turtles in the Greek seas? Is it normal to record around 600 standings of dead sea turtles each year? How come that most sea turtles that arrive at ARCHELON’s Rescue Centre have swallowed hooks and fishing lines or are intentionally injured by humans? Does protecting the reproduction of a protected species on beaches without rubbish, rubble, artificial lighting and wheeled vehicles mean anything to us? Is there real value in scientific knowledge, in the progress of research and in the environmental education of children and young people?
Let us show that we have received the message, by supporting the important work done by ARCHELON.
What better gift is there than to start the New Year with a hatchling that begins the adventure of its own life and will take the name we will give it! There are also the options of adopting a “mother” turtle - a nesting female which has been tagged and returns to nest regularly-, a nest with many hatchlings protected on the beach and the even more touching adoption of an injured turtle that will receive treatment and care at the Sea Turtle Rescue Centre of ARCHELON.
On the threshold of the New Year, together with the courage, strength and optimism we need, let us show the determination to best support nature and the environment, in which we are all called to survive.
To make an adoption, enter our website, select a type of adoption in your cart and proceed with the payment with your credit card or via PAYPAL. In a few days you will receive your printable certificate electronically along with more info and surprise gifts!
The funds raised will be used for rescue, treatment and protection of sea turtles during this difficult period of the pandemic.
