Episkopi Turtlewatch chose to celebrate ‘International Endangered Species Day’ in an apt manner by completing its annual beach clean programme. A host of eager volunteers braved the hottest day of the year so far in order to prepare Paramali kitesurfing Beach for imminent turtle nesting season. The efforts of the turtlewatch volunteers were supported by several members of the SBA police, the newly formed “Cyprus Women of Today” group, local kite surfers and Paramali Council. Funding was supplied by Project AWARE Foundation International.
Thanks are also due to the muhktar of Paramali who surprised the participants with well deserved refreshments after the hard work had been completed.
