Earth Sea and Sky has been one of the most innovative and pioneering non-govermental organisation to provide significant conservation interventions on the island of Zante over the last 20 years. Founder of the NGO Yiannis Vardakstanis has worked painstakingly to raise awareness around conservation of the endangered species on the island and of their natural habitat as well as promoting a model of sustainable tourism. Earth Sea and Sky has always relied on volunteering and donation input.
Their growing number of supporters also included a celebrity... The world famous Paul the psychic Octopus who became official ambassador of the 100,000 Euro fund-raising campaign to help build a functional Turtle Rescue Centre on Gerakas beach.
Gerakas is one of the most well-preserved natural treasures on the island which balances tourism and ecology efficiently. Earth Sea and Sky visitors can participate in conservation activities, enjoy a katamaran tour of the National Marine Park and have a fulfilling vacation that does not compromise the island's natural beauty and importance. Of great importance are the centre's volunteering and educational projects focusing on the endangered species of the loggerhead turtle Caretta Caretta as well as the alternative sustainable holiday packages on offer.
