Back on July 21st 2020, a Caretta Caretta turtle arrived on Panaghia beach to lay 115 eggs, see our news back then July 21st turtle made nest with a very good collaboration from Toulipa Goulimi.
On June 18th 2022, two years later, another Caretta Caretta turtle arrived to lay its eggs laid on June 18th 2022
On September 14th 2020 at 7.34am, the first baby turtles came out of the nest and few weeks later Maria & Janis from Toulipa Goulimi came to open the nest following the Archelon procedures. Turtles are born
What a great collaboration between Elafonisos Eco and Toulipa Goulimi !
After 54 days in 2020, the baby turtles were born. This year, we are 48 days after the eggs were laid off. So from now on at any moment, could be the right time for the eggs to open up and reveal the baby turtles. We cleaned up the beach front in order to facilitate the access to the sea to the baby turtles.
So every morning, early, we will monitor in order to protect the baby turtles from seagulls as we did 2 years ago. We will keep you informed as soon as we have hopefully good news, and of course will as well update the official authorities.
Let’s cross our fingers !
