We first received the joyful news from ARCHELON volunteers in both Laganas bay, Zakynthos and Kyparissia bay on the 18th of July. Then, on the 24th of July, the Messara bay project reported the first hatchlings on Crete. Two days later, on the 26th of July there were traces of hatchlings on Mavrovouni beach, Lakonikos bay in south Peloponnese. There are daily counts of hatchlings in most projects by now and we are escalating our efforts to minimize their disorientation due to artificial lights on the beaches.

I applied because I’m very passionate about species and environmental protection. Marine animals always fascinated me. They have something truly magical on them.
