    Greece: Island Turtle Conservation

    Journey to one of the beautiful Ionian Islands in Western Greece to help conserve and protect Greek sea turtles.

    Become a conservation scientist over the course of your week on this Mediterranean jewel. In the mornings you will go on beach walks to spot new turtle nests and then work to protect them from predators and people. During the rest of the day, you’ll track and observe sea turtles from land and sea. Walk the beautiful harbor to find sea turtles munching on seaweed snacks in the aquamarine water. Dive in and explore the turtle’s habitat while snorkeling.

    These amazing creatures face threats from both man-made and natural impacts. All of our conservation activities are supported by local experts who will teach us about the turtles, the ecosystem, and the goals of the project.

    This program is so much more than just conservation though. This island is known for its stunning beaches, crystal-clear waters, picturesque villages, and mountainous landscapes. We’ll have plenty of downtime to enjoy the beaches, hike the mountains, relax at the pool, and enjoy fresh Greek cuisine.

    Italy & Greece: Cultural Immersion and Turtles

    Combine the popular Northern Italy Adventure and Island Turtle Conservation programs for one epic experience!

    Start your journey exploring the highlights of Northern Italy: the sights, the foods, the history, and more. Then make the jump to the Greek Island of Kefalonia and dive into the life of a marine conservationist as you help protect endangered sea turtles.

    Choose this combination program and we’ll take care of providing you with an extra day of exploring Italy and your flight that takes you to Greece to join your new group.
