Chelonia Project

The Chelonia Project is a new action program for young people, focusing on habitat restoration actions, captive breeding, reintroduction programs and measures to safeguard the species in the wild.
Young people are involved in educational programs and behind-the-scenes experiences with live animals at Chelonia, in order to learn about wildlife conservation and raising awareness in their local schools and communities, to support in situ conservation programs.
Focusing on European turtles and tor­toises as flagship species, Chelonia is a great example of how education and enthusiasm can involve young people in the conservation of endangered species.
