Waiting for the births of the Caretta Caretta turtles…

by | Aug 6, 2022

On July 21, 2020, a Caretta Caretta turtle arrived on the beach of Panaghia and laid 115 eggs (see our news back then: July 21 turtle birthswith an excellent collaboration with Toulipa Goulimi.

On June 18, 2022, two years later, another Caretta Caretta turtle arrived to lay eggs on June 18, 2022.

On September 14, 2020 at 7.34 am, the first baby turtles came out of the nest and a few weeks later Jannis and Maria of Toulipa Goulimi came to open the nest following the procedures of Archelon. What a great collaboration between Elafonisos Eco and Toulipa Goulimi!

After 54 days in 2020, baby turtles were born. To date, 48 days have passed since the brood. So, from now on, early in the morning, baby turtles can be born. We cleaned up the beach front to facilitate access to the sea for baby turtles.


So every morning, soon, we will monitor to protect the baby turtles from seagulls as we did 2 years ago. We will keep you informed as soon as we have good news and, of course, we will also update the official authorities.

Fingers crossed!
