This year our gifts also give back a bit of history!

This year our gifts also give back a bit of history!ARCHELON was founded in 1983 with the aim of studying and protecting sea turtles and their habitats. With the advent of the year 2023 we are celebrating forty years of action, combining scientific work with volunteerism and aiming to mobilize society for a better and sustainable planet.

Together with thousands of volunteers from al over the world we spent forty summers of field work with endless hours of walking on beaches and hard work early in the morning, late at night or under the hot sun. We counted hundreds of thousands of protected nests. We responded to hundreds of sea turtle rescue emergencies and released hundreds of treated turtles back to the sea. We completed forty years of actions for the environment, with research and publications, spreading information and awareness to the public and to schools, in collaboration with other Environmental Organisations, competent authorities, hotel owners and fishermen, with awards, but also some failures, threats and risks.

This year our gifts also give back a bit of history!The 2023 Anniversary Calendar will bring your memories from the nesting beaches, the Rescue Centre and the Information Stations to life. Each month comes with a small piece of ARCHELON’s history, so that from January to December 2023 we can take a walk together through the last forty years...

You can order the Calendar and other anniversary gifts and celebrate this forty- year milestone with us, such as the new silver pendant, the wooden coaster set and the badge set. There are more new releases such as the stainless steel travel mug, the mini umbrella, the bamboo wireless charger and the recycled cotton backpack. You will find them all at our e-shop and at the little shop in the ARCHELON Rescue Centre (3rd Marina of Glyfada).

This year our gifts also give back a bit of history!Our work continues. The Rescue Centre houses 17 injured turtles these days which are being treated by our staff and volunteers. The call for volunteers at the nesting beach projects for 2023 has been published. By making a purchase, you continue the work of ARCHELON. This year choose gifts that give back!
