Protection of Caretta – Caretta Loggerhead Sea Turtles

These magnificent, prehistoric sea creatures chose Zakynthos as their reproduction bio-type millions of years ago. The Bay of Laganas forms part of the National Marine Park which was set up to offer protection of the Loggerhead sea turtles known as Caretta-Caretta.

Every year, between June-August, the Caretta-Caretta return to the shores of their birthplace, at night time to lay their own eggs in the warm sand and hope they hatch and the baby turtles reach the sea and survive. Surveillance teams of professionals and volunteers ensure that the eggs are protected, no lights or noise are permitted at night time and this is why night flights are not allowed in Zakythos.
During the day time – the nesting sites on the beaches are protected from wandering tourists by boxed off areas which are regularly patrolled.
The Greek State, other organizations and W.W.F. have the beaches and turtles use under surveillance, and there are special information posts for visitors.
