Animal Care and Social Responsibility

The “Animal Care and Social Responsibility” programme by ARCHELON involves students aged 10-18 in caring for injured and endangered sea turtles. Participants engage in educational workshops to learn about animal welfare and environmental conservation. They take part in hands-on activities at the ARCHELON rescue center, such as feeding and cleaning the turtles, as well as rehabilitation efforts. Additionally, students participate in beach clean-up projects to help protect sea turtle habitats and engage in community awareness campaigns to educate others about the importance of sea turtle protection. These activities promote empathy towards animals, environmental responsibility, and community engagement.
