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.
