Medical Treatment. Every year almost 50 turtles are brought to the Rescue Centre form all over Greece. The most common injuries for which turtles are being treated at the STRC are: amputations due to fishing gear entanglement, ingestion of hooks and other materials such as plastic bags, deliberate head injuries by fishermen, collision with speedboats etc.

Stranding Network. Every year in Greece almost 300 stranded turtles are recorded. When a dead sea turtle is found, the port police of each area is responsible to contact the Municipality, which will bury it immediately and if an injured sea turtle is found, the port police arranges its transportation to the Rescue Centre.

Public awareness. Every year almost 20000 people (schools, organised groups, and individual visitors) visit the exhibition area of the Rescue Centre. Environmental activities are conducted in collaboration with the Department of Environmental Education.

The Volunteers Training Centre, which was made in co-operation with the General Youth Secretariat, is an area special organized for presentations and accommodates a photographic exhibition about the history, biodiversity and biology of sea turtle.

The function and maintenance of the Rescue Centre is based on volunteers. Every year almost 50 volunteers work on sea turtle treatment, maintenance and public awareness.
