Volunteer to protect endangered sea turtles in Greece while getting hands-on field research experience, meeting new people and exploring the Kefalonian coast.
I had a fantastic experience volunteering with the Sea Turtle Conservation project in Kefalonia. They are a hard-working group who work, with passion, for the survival of the endangered sea turtles. The leaders informed and trained us voluntary field researchers every step of the way. Cathy Gunn, UK

Based on the beautiful island of Kefalonia, Greece the project aims to protect endangered sea turtles and their natural habitats, offer a unique learning experience to the volunteers who join our efforts, and promote public awareness.
Kefalonia is situated off the west coast of Greece. It is the largest island of the Ionian Sea and maintains a rich biodiversity, with a substantial number of endemic and rare species. Kefalonia is green and rich in stunning scenery, beautiful villages, and its own diversity of traditions and local products.
During your free time, volunteers can visit the local beaches to swim, sunbathe, and relax. Volunteers also regularly arrange group outings to explore the island, or to one of the nearby restaurants to experience the local cuisine.
