Discover historic Greece when you live and volunteer alongside a team of international volunteers, and make a real contribution to the conservation and protection of one of the most important loggerhead turtle nesting areas in the region.
Based in the beautiful Bay of Kyparissia in the western Peloponnese, you will live and volunteer with a team of international volunteers to conserve and protect one of the most important loggerhead turtle nesting areas in Greece. The team engages in daily morning surveys to record nesting activity and protect turtle nests against predation by mammals and inundation by sea water. Volunteers will also provide important conservation information to overseas visitors and the local community.

Highlights
Hands-on work with one of the most endangered species in the Mediterranean; living in a quiet area near a traditional fishing town; exploring nearby nature reserves and admiring local architecture; the thrill of seeing turtles lay their eggs and watching the hatchlings head for the sea; experiencing Greek culture first hand in a beautiful area which you can explore in your free time; taking a great first step towards your career in practical conservation or simply making a lasting one-off contribution to the preservation of endangered turtles.

Sea Turtle Conservation in Greece

About Your Location

The project site is a 10-minute walk from the village of Giannitsochori, a small and traditional village in the municipality of Zacharo, southern Elis. It is situated in the narrow coastal plains along the Ionian Sea, 2 km north of the mouth of the river Neda, at the foot of the western extensions of the mountain Minthi. It is a known beach resort with amazing Greek historical ruins close by.

In between your shifts, you will have plenty of time to soak up the sun on the sandy white beaches or relax with your fellow volunteers back at the campsite. Although the climate will be hot and can get very humid, by living so close to the beach you will be able to cool down with a quick dip in the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean. Depending on how your shifts are structured, you will also have one day off a week, giving you time to explore the local area and immerse yourself even more into the breathtaking natural beauty, culture and history that Greece has to offer.

Project Life

Together with our local partners we ensure you receive all the necessary training to meet the project's objectives. The work is varied, with all volunteers rotating around the different roles: turtle patrol, camp duty, bamboo harvesting (used to protect the nests) and an environmental education program for the locals and tourists. The days are long, it is hot and you will have to walk long distances (minimum 5 km) during surveys.

Project Details

We work in collaboration with a Greek organisation that has been conducting research in this area since 1983, making it one of the oldest conservation projects in the Mediterranean. Key volunteer tasks include:

Patrolling the beach to locate new tracks and nests
Recording data and measurements
Installing protective nest grids
Nest relocation (if required)
Nest excavation (from August onwards)
Bamboo harvesting - assembling nest grids

Data collected not only contributes to coastal management plans in Greece but also towards the international strategy for the conservation of sea turtles.

Please note that it is likely that you see turtles while on the project, especially during the hatching season, but this is not guaranteed.

How This Project Makes a Difference

Protecting nests against predation by mammals and/or inundation by sea water ensures that as many hatchlings as possible are added to the population each year, while public awareness activities help people adopt friendlier attitudes towards the natural environment and possibly reduce their environmental footprint in the area.

What Makes a Good Volunteer?

Volunteers need to be flexible and keep an open mind concerning their placements as situations can arise beyond our control which could require you to be placed at a different project than the one you have initially chosen. We will of course always do our utmost to fulfill your initial wishes but do remember that where you are going is quite different from where you are coming and as such one should be prepared for things not always going according to plan.

Volunteering and intercultural travel share a common trait: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. This program is designed for proactive individuals and groups that are prepared to adapt to the local environment and its current needs. Naturally, the scheduling and activities of our program are subject to change. Alterations in activities are mainly due to changes in local conditions, which we believe is part of what makes overseas programs the interesting adventure and incredible learning experience that they are.

How Long Should I Volunteer?

Our projects range from 1 week up to approx. 30 weeks. Projects have a specified minimum stay, then it’s up to you how long you can commit. In our experience the longer you stay the more you will gain, as your understanding of the project broadens and you take on more responsibilities. Every volunteer will be given a certificate of appreciation at the end of their stay as a symbol of volunteering stay.

Boende

Accommodation is in tents right next to the beach providing you with a breathtaking scenic view to wake up to each morning. Each volunteer has their own private tent and bathroom facilities are shared at the campsite. Thin Camp mattresses are provided, you may want to bring an additional inflatable mattress with you. The facilities will be more basic than you are accustomed to - please travel with an open mind and a willingness to adapt to local conditions.

The campsite has a number of facilities including a mini-market, a self-service restaurant and washing machines that you can use for EUR 5 per load. Hand washing facilities are also available and washing powder and buckets are provided for hand washing. Please be aware that there are not many plug sockets available at the camp so power banks are recommended if you need to charge your phone regularly.

Lokal transport

Arrival
Make sure to arrive between 13:00 and 16:00 on the program start date. If you arrive before 13:00, go to the arrivals floor and look for people wearing a navy blue GVI T-shirt holding a white sign with a green GVI logo on it. They will be waiting in front of the arrival gates, either gate A or B. Those arriving early will need to arrange their own accommodation prior to project start.

Departure
At the end of the program, your group will be transferred back to Athens International Airport on Saturday midday. We will be departing at 08:00 and the bus journey back to Athens airport is 4 hours long, so you are recommended not to book a flight earlier than 16:00. You may want to keep plans flexible or allow a day or two after the program end date before arranging onward travel to avoid missing connections.

Måltider

Food will be cooked as a shared activity by all the participants in the camp site and it is a combination of healthy and varied Mediterranean local products.
