Environmentalists are raising concerns after discovering sea turtle nests in Greece much earlier than usual. Scientists attribute this to rising sea temperatures caused by climate change.

The Caretta-Caretta sea turtle, a threatened species, nests on the western Greek coast. The discovery of a nest on Zakynthos in May is a significant deviation from historical patterns.

This highlights the urgency of climate action. Travelers can contribute by choosing eco-friendly travel options and supporting conservation efforts. Remember, respect the nesting sites and follow guidelines to ensure a minimal impact on these vulnerable animals.
