This volunteer work in Greece focuses on protecting endangered sea turtles and marine conservation. Volunteers have a choice to join either the Sea Turtle or Coastal Conservation programme. All while 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

Collect data along the sandy beaches, protect turtles in their natural habitat, learn about this incredible endangered species and explore the beautiful island of Kefalonia! This volunteer experience aims to protect endangered sea turtles and their natural habitats. It offers a unique learning experience for volunteers and it is crucial for promoting public awareness.
Kefalonia is off the west coast of mainland Greece and is the largest island of the Ionian Sea. It is home to a rich biodiversity, with a large number of endemic and rare species. The island is brimming with stunning scenery, beautiful villages, and a unique diversity of traditions.
When not engaged in volunteer work with turtles, you can visit the local beaches to swim, sunbathe, and relax. Volunteers can also arrange group outings to explore the island. Take the chance to visit nearby restaurants and indulge in the local cuisine.
