Conservation is at the heart at everything we do here at SEA LIFE. We are pioneers of marine animal rescue, marine breeding programmes and petitioning governments to ensure the amazing underwater world is protected for future generations to enjoy. During your visit to SEA LIFE we strive to inform your pupils of our conservation efforts, encourage them to ask questions and carry out independent study. We believe this knowledge empowers students to make a difference.
The Greek island Zakynthos has been one of the main nesting locations for Mediterranean loggerhead turtles for thousands of years. Sadly, due to the tourism boom in the area, nesting adult females are being disturbed, eggs are being accidentally destroyed, and new hatchlings become confused by the lights and sounds of hotels and bars on the beaches. We are currently campaigning to build a turtle rescue facility and sanctuary in Laganas, Zakynthos.
So far, the SOS SEA LIFE Turtle Project has raised 150,000 Euros for the sanctuary and building work is continuing with assistance from volunteer electricians and carpenters from England.
To find out more about this project, download our Turtle Conservation Pack which is filled with activities, competitions and information for your class.

SEA LIFE has developed our existing relationship with WDCS to provide an education initiative that encourages children to learn about whales and to take an active part in their conservation.
The Whale Diploma is a fun, curriculum-linked education pack teaching children about the world of whales, whilst encouraging them to get actively involved in whale protection. Suitable for use in schools and at home. Aimed at 8-12 year olds but can be tailored to suit other ages.
