Meet Nileas, the rescued sea turtle

An injured sea turtle was found floating in shallow water at The Dunes Beach by Costa Navarino’s lifeguards. Thanks to the immediate action of employees and Archelon volunteers, the turtle was taken to the Rescue Center to recover. He was given the name “Nileas”, after the mythical son of the sea god Poseidon and founder of Pylos.

Hopefully Nileas will soon be healthy again and we are looking forward to releasing him into his natural environment!

Special thanks to everybody who helped: Costa Navarino associates, Archelon volunteers, Pylos Port Authority and Gargaliani Bus Company.
