The village of Giannitsochori is a small resort town with white sandy beaches that form part of a protected nature area. The region has plenty of historical, archaeological and natural sites that are worth a visit including the famous Ancient Olympia, the birth place of the Olympic Games.
There is plenty of work to be done at this conservation project and volunteers will rotate between tasks. Because the summer months are hatchling season, many of the activities will focus on the nesting and hatching of baby sea turtles. Much of the work is hands-on and up close which means participants will have a real chance to see the life cycle of the sea turtles. There is a lot of physical activity and long walks so volunteers should be prepared to work hard.
Some of your tasks may include:
Volunteers will work hard during the week but enjoy the local sights and culture on the weekend. Participants may be exploring the ancient ruins of temples, towns, amphitheaters, Byzantine churches and more.
Internet: WiFi is available sometimes at the campsite.
Laundry: Hand-washing stations are available and for a small fee, volunteers can use the washing machine and dryer.
Accommodations: Volunteers will stay at the public campsite in shared two-man tents with very basic sleeping mats. At the campsite there are shared bathrooms with hot and cold water, flush toilets and showers. Tents will not have electricity but there are electricity supply boxes at the campsite. Any valuables can be stored and locked in the campsite office.
Food: All meals are provided. Food will be cooked as a shared chore by all the participants in the camp site and it is a combination of healthy and varied Mediterranean local products.
