1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Doing night patrol, really trying to look for turtles and potentially help them in the water. Along with educating people about how they can help keep the turtles protected and safe.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Try everything once. My group didnít know about night patrol for the first few nights and when we tried it, it was great. Same with collecting bamboo, it's all part of the experience so try everything once even if you donít think you will like it.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I feel like while my group was there we talked to many people, and some were more receptive then others. I definitely felt a big support in the conservation aspect.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

I would recommend it to anyone itís an amazing experience in general but the bonus is you get to impact and animals well being and thatís just incredible in itself.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Rescuing some hatchling turtles, which had been confused by the lights of the adjacent campsite when they emerged from their nest on the beach, and encouraging them to go the right way towards the sea. Two hours after the "turtle emergency" was declared, all but a handful of the escapees had successfully flapped their way to the water, and were taking their first swims. Between the volunteers and the interested and helpful campers of all ages, we probably rescued about 50-60 turtles.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Bring a dependable alarm clock, as the starts are early. The food is great, but watch your waistline. Bring a mask and snorkel for swimming, especially at Valtaki Beach.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Supported conservation; supported local people by using public transport and eating locally.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very relaxed pace, good to have a chance to make the world better. Gythio is a pretty little town and the surroundings in Mani have very very dramatic scenery.
