The Kefalonian Marine Turtle Project

Home Page

Welcome to the KMTP. We are a Sea Turtle Research and Conservation Project based at the University of Wales, Swansea, UK. Every year, from May until October, we work with the local population to study and conserve the loggerhead turtle on the Greek island of Kefalonia.
We also have strong links with MEDASSET - The Mediterranean Association to Save the Sea Turtles.

Please have a look through our site by clicking on the icons below : enjoy!

In 1999, the KMTP handed over all conservation work to the Katelios Group for the Research and Protection of Marine and Terrestrial Life based on Kefalonia - we wish them the best of luck in their efforts to find a sustainable future for the sea turtles of Kefalonia.

Contact email for this group 28082 Kefalonia, Greece. Tel: 0671-81584 Fax: 0671 81009

This site will remain intact as an archive and tribute to the work done on Kefalonia since 1984 by the KMTP and the Marine Turtle Project.
