The cost to join this project to protect endangered sea turtles in Greece for 2 weeks is £680 and 4 weeks is £980. This cost includes accommodation in the volunteer apartments shared with the rest of the team, transfers from Kefalonia airport or bus station to the project on your start and end dates, a researcher t-shirt, ongoing training and project operation costs, crockery, and cookware. The cost does not include your travel to & from the project (i.e. flights to Kefalonia), food, travel insurance or personal expenses. It is mandatory for you to take out travel insurance for the duration of your stay.
To secure your volunteer placement, you will need to complete and submit the online application form including your application payment of £180 (included in the total project costs listed above), and please also email a recent photo of yourself to the volunteer coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. If for some reason, your application is not accepted, we would reimburse your application payment fully. However, for those who are accepted, one-third of the full balance amount needs to be paid within 7 days of being confirmed on the project, with the remaining balance to be paid two months before your arrival. If you apply with under 2 month’s notice, the full payment is due in full upon confirmation. Once your place is confirmed on the programme, you will receive pre-departure information with all further details on your project, travel info, suggested items to bring and so on.
We currently offer two different project locations that sea turtle conservation volunteers can work at in Greece, Argostoli & Lixouri. You can join either location for either 2 weeks or 4 weeks and start on the specific dates listed below only (please note a stay of 3 weeks is not possible due to the fixed date slots, you can only volunteer for either 2 or 4 weeks). Interns can join for more than 4 weeks but placements need to be arranged well in advance, so please email us for further details. Please note that each location also has different start & end dates as listed below.
