Turtles being over exploited in Lagana bay (lets hope this does not transfer to kefalonia!)

Arbitrary tourist attraction have become the sea turtles in the gulf of Laganas Bay. 

The regulations of the marine park and the port authority are not respected.

Αυθαίρετη τουριστική ατραξιόν έχουν γίνει οι θαλάσσιες χελώνες στον κόλπο του Λαγανά. Νέα σύγκρουση χελώνας με βάρκα. Δεν τηρούνται οι κανονισμοί του Θαλάσσιου Πάρκου και της Λιμενική αρχής.

People keep sending us photos from Laganas Zakynthos; this one from yesterday shows 5 boats that observed one turtle for over 30 minutes.

Thank you for helping us make the case for better enforcement of regulations. We must keep on trying
