AGIANNAKIS, KYPARISSIA BAY

We appreciate your interest!
The Sea Turtle Beach Walks program will be launched again in Summer 2023.

Book a visit to the Agiannakis Environmental Station and take a Sea Turtle Walk at the nesting beach to learn about sea turtles during a 45 min walk with an ARCHELON volunteer.

This walk is part of ARCHELON's multi-sectoral environmental awareness program and aims to integrate environmental interpretation as a conservation tool to raise awareness about the nesting beaches, the sand dunes and proper human - sea turtle interactions.

Visit the exhibition about the unique natural coast of Kyparissia Bay at the Agiannakis Environmental Station and walk through the coastal forest and dunes down to the nesting beach, where you will have the opportunity to learn about sea turtles, the threats they face, and our conservation work. There will be stops along the walk at specific points where we will share with you information about the coastal woods and the fragile ecosystem of sand dunes. We will show you tracks of female sea turtles, hatchlings or sea turtle nests depending on the season. During our walk, you will learn some interesting facts about sea turtles and their life cycle / biology and you will receive information about the challenges that these incredible protected marine creatures face from human activity and what YOU can do to help them.
