Τhe 4th Scouts Troops of Corfu in Zakynthos Program
On the noon of the 3rd August took place a visit and a Contribution Activity of the 4th Scouts Troops of Corfu to the Field Program of ARCHELON in Zakynthos.
ARCHELON volunteers made an analytical presentation to the Scouts regarding loggerhead turtle biology, the nest protection measures and the ARCHELON Field Program in Zakynthos.
From their side the Scouts of the 4th Troops helped us in the construction and assembling of nest shading equipment, a measure used for the protection of hatching nests that are in danger of light pollution and disorientation of hatchlings.
Following this the Scouts participated in the Rafaelʼs release, a male loggerhead turtle that was re-integrated to his natural environment later in the afternoon.
We would like to thank the Scouts of the 4th Scouts Troops of Corfu and their leader Manolis Orfanoudakis for the Contribution to the ARCHELON Field Program in Zakynthos and we hope for similar activities and meetings in the future.
