θαλάσσια χελώνα (Sea Turtle)
This painting was created to raise awareness about the actions taken in Greece to save the sea turtles by companies like Archelon and WWF Greece. For example, they protect the island of Zakynthos which invlcudes 500-1000 nests a year and protects over 2,500 nests each year.
Many other countries around the world have been working to save the sea turtles. According to records from individual time series there are more population increases than descreases: ''we found 95 significant increases in abundance and 35 significant decreases'' (1) Hopefully, this trend will start to continue so we can see population increases around the globe!
