Einsatzort: Griechenland, Europa
Aktions-Bereich: Tierpflege & Veterinärprojekte, Natur-und Umweltschutz
A 1 week hands-on educational experience for 16-17 year olds, which qualifies as a Gold DofE Residential. It’s based on the Greek island of Kefalonia, focussing on the conservation of sea turtles and coastal ecosystems.

Projekt und Rolle der Freiwilligen

You will be part of the Volunteer Under 18 team spending 1 week getting involved in Turtle and Marine conservation in Greece! You will be supported by team leaders who will be living with you on the beautiful island of Kefalonia. It's open to all 16-17 year olds and is also an ideal trip to complete your DofE Gold Residential.

You will have exciting conservation activities every day, including turtle nesting beach surveys (early morning starts), harbour surveys of the turtle population, snorkelling surveys of sea grass meadows and a coastal clean-up. These activities will be accompanied a series of engaging educational presentations.

You will help the local turtle charity with:
* Turtle nesting beach surveys and nest checks - between 5:30-11am
* Harbour survey of adult turtles - between 8am and 10am
* Snorkel surveys of seagrass meadows - 1pm
* Coastal clean-ups

July is turtle nesting season and August is a transition between the end of the nesting season and start of the turtle hatching season, on the August start date volunteers will spend one night monitoring for hatchlings on the beach (from 9pm to 6am).

Accommodation is provided in shared tents at a campsite conveniently located just outside Argostoli town. Each tent can sleep up to 4 people, on a single sex basis. Tents are provided with electricity, light, refrigerator, table and chairs. The campsite is set in a shady olive grove and is close to a lovely beach with incredible sunset views, a perfect place to relax at the end of a busy day!

Meals are included.
