A small beach that is less than 550 metres long has been a symbol of our action for the protection of wildlife in Greece for more than 27 years. This is Sekania beach in Zakynthos. A small but very important strip of coastline that highlights the importance of protected areas and sustainable management on a national and international level.
The nesting beach at Sekania every year records a notable number of nests which represent an average percentage of more than 45% of the total amount of the recorded nests at the six different nesting beaches of the National Marine Park of Zakynthos. The nests can reach a range of 600-900 every nesting season.
These notable records are the result of the legislative framework, the effective management and monitoring, and our permanent presence on Sekania beach. Mainly, however, they are proof that persistence and — more than anything else — collaboration are always the answer to the challenges we face.
