The KMTP would sincerely like to thank the following persons and organisations for their help during the past three seasons:

Without his assistance each season would have been an impossibility; The Normanchise of Kefalonia, Makis Metaxas for his advise and encouragement throughout the season. The Mayor of Skala, Andreas Zapandis for allowing us to continue our work on the island; the President of Katelios and his community for their hospitality over the years; Petros Terzakopolous whose enthusiasm and dedication is a driving force in our combined work; Jim Allessandratos from Ionian Natural History Tours for his constant support; Costas Pantelios for project accommodation; Inspirations, Thomson Holidays, Manos, Apollo, First Choice and any other holiday companies who helped the KMTP by promoting turtles as an important asset to Kefalonia.
