Natural Greece uses tourism as a major tool for nature conservation by integrating a variety of activities and programs during its wildlife explorations.
In collaboration with the charity organization Callisto, the Bear conservation aims at preserving the rare brown bears and raising awareness about maintaining the region’s biodiversity. Bear tracking does not include baiting or other means of exploitation, as to not disrupt the natural behaviour of the wildlife. Finally, the tour price includes a donation that is offered to Callisto to protect endangered species.
Dolphin conservation strives to preserve marine life and protect and study the four endangered dolphin species. The travel package includes donation to the Greek charity Mom, which also aspires to protect the Mediterranean monk seal, by safely and carefully observing their behaviour and population in order to gain more knowledge about them. Swimming alongside dolphins and seals is forbidden, as it disturbs their natural behaviour and the team’s research activities. Preserving its coastal environment is essential for both the island’s and the fauna’s well-being.
Finally, The Greece Eco Volunteering Vacation and the Greece Sea Conservation holiday is all about volunteering for the Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece Archelon. Either at the Sea Turtle Rescue centre or at the sandy beaches, protecting the nests. A donation to the sea turtle charity is included in your holiday!
