Archelon’s (Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece) rescue centre   Leave a comment

Reblogged from Videos4volunteers:

is about to celebrate its 20th year in existence. Due to Archelon’s work, many injured turtles have been returned to the wild and the main nesting areas of this endangered species are closely monitored. Sadly however, still over 500 sea turtles die in Greece each year despite the significant work of the volunteers.

Documentary about Archelons’ Rescue Centre from Videos4Volunteers.

Through its stranding network Archelon is able to provide medical care to injured turtles found anywhere in Greece. This network also provides vital information about sea turtle fatalities which help the organization understand the key threats to sea turtles. Life at the rescue centre is always very dynamic with something new happening every day. The winter is particularly hard as sea turtles need warm waters to help the medicines work and the volunteers also suffer the same cold temperatures in their converted railway carriage shelter.

This is a fascinating story with amazing people and heart breaking events for sure along the way. We know that these days the best way to tell a story is through video and social media and we are making this documentary so that everybody can see first hand what life is like on the cutting edge of environmental conservation. We are not a film company, we are just a bunch of volunteers who want to help and in turn we are going to be asking for your help to. The final film will be used by Archelon to promote their work but will also be available for free to whoever wants to use it. As far as we are concerned the more people that learn about the plight of the sea turtles the better. Please sign up now to follow us and find out how you can really help..
