100turtles marine waste project

This coming season Naucrates team will work on finding answers to Does the amount of marine debris stranded on the beach affect the sea turtle nesting ground?

While evaluating, we will involve guest, volunteers, children, tourists in beach cleaning events and collecting marine debris. A station will be set up near Naucrates camp, where the evaluation of the amount of debris will be recorded and where we will create a Turtle Sculpture of collected items.

The sculpture will be a big adult, turtle mother, then children will make up to 100 baby turtles, which represent the number of eggs laid in one nest!

Each child that visits or joins volunteering with us can make one, until we reach 100. The sculpture will be placed in the Community Conservation Center at Lions village in memory of Pipap, our beloved friend and long term staff member.
