For those looking for a more unique and educative activity for their family or friends in Athens, there is now the Sea Turtle Rescue Tour, a special visit to the Sea Turtle Rescue Center of ARCHELON in Glyfada!
The release of Wallace back to the sea took place on July 1st and was a touching event. The strong winds and big waves did not prevent about 350 people from joining the event to say good bye to Wallace.
Satellite tags were deployed in 12 loggerhead turtles in order to investigate their movements at sea between each nesting effort as well as their movements after their nesting is completed for the season.
The first nests of sea turtle Caretta caretta were found in Koroni by ARCHELON’s volunteers on 19th and 20th of June. Unfortunately, the very first was found predated by wild animals, the second was protected successfully.
