A dedicated team of ARCHELON volunteers participated in the children's festival P100-Planet Technopolis with great success! Meanwhile, ARCHELON's educational programs for the new school year have already begun at the Rescue Centre.
Two rescued female loggerhead sea turtles returned to their natural habitat, the sea, after a stay of about 10 months in ARCHELON’s Sea Turtle Rescue Centre and the whole Life- Euroturtles team attended this event. ARCHELON was hosting the annual meeting of the project and partners from Cyprus, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia and Malta were in Glyfada during most of last week.
“Chrysanthi” returned to her natural environment, the blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea a few days ago and began its new life on the Missiria Rethymno beach in front of a crowd. All the attendees showed due respect to the animal and the team of ARCHELON volunteers who were there to inform and assist in the smooth outcome of the event.
We are sad to report that once more the touristic attraction of “turtle spotting” was fatal for a male loggerhead turtle resident in the area, which had been tagged and photographed by ARCHELON and was also known by the name “Hercules”.
