Volunteering in Greece in September


I'm raising £1,030 to the project of volunteering with Wildlife Sense in Kefalonia, Greece in September. The sea turtle eggs were suffered and destroyed by both human and natural threats. This project is to protect the endangered sea turtles and collaborate with the local and national authorities. It is an amazing volunteering opportunity to do something good for the environment and gain a special experience. In order to make the goal a reality, I need to raise £1,030 to cover the cost of the trip.


I am SHI TING ZHANG. I am a second year student in the Essex Business School. I love travelling and supporting environmental protection. I would like to be a part of Wildlife Sense international team and help the endangered sea turtles.

volunteer role

This project aims to protect and preserve the vulnerable baby sea turtles that hatch on the beaches of Greece. I will search the turtle nests and make sure they are in a safe circumstance. I will also help the young turtle hatch to safely crawl to the sea. In order to protect them from natural damage, I will do the environment studies of light pollution and ecosystems. All the works we do are aimed to protect the endangered turtles and remain the biodiversity of the world.

I need the money to cover the training, transports, food, accommodation and other expense. I would like to do something for the environment, but I need your help. It is a good way for donors to take part in a conservation effort.
