About this program

Immerse in the ancient history of Greece and learn about the conservation of loggerhead sea turtles by participating in hands-on beach surveys, nest excavation and public education.

You’ll camp on the beach with other volunteers from around the world, make life-long friendships and learn new skills!

Enjoy the adventurous weekend excursion planned for you to see some of the most incredible sights Greece has to offer!

During your time on the project, your work will be extremely varied. Volunteers will rotate around the different roles of turtle patrol, camp duty, bamboo harvesting (used to protect the nests) and an environmental education program for the locals and tourists.

Volunteers should expect the days to be long, as well as hot, with plenty of walking (at least 5km) while taking part in the various surveys.

Your accommodation will be quite rustic, with amazing views to wake up to each morning. Volunteers will be camped right next to the beach, at a campsite that has a number of facilities such as a mini-market and a restaurant.

In between your shifts, you will have plenty of time to relax on the sandy white beaches, explore the nearby area with your fellow volunteers or simply relax at the campsite and take in all the beautiful natural scenery.

GVI’s Under-18 programs are crafted to give teens an in-depth volunteer experience along with adventure and the chance to acquire new skills. Parents and guardians can rest assured that teens will have a high level of supervision from qualified staff, while teens dive into new experiences, make new friends and make a difference!
