- Setting Description:
- Archipelagos operates far from city centers and commercial interests, offering a pure, direct approach to environmental conservation. We work in different areas of the Aegean Sea throughout the year, next to the ecosystems in need of protection and management. Our main research base, located in Pythagorio on the island of Samos, is a multifunctional facility with offices, a small library, presentation area, small laboratory, dormitory-style rooms and a kitchen, with wireless Internet throughout.
- Because we are a non-profit, non-governmental organization working within a limited budget, there is a placement fee of 650 euros per month. This placement fee covers full room and board, as well as Greek language lessons. Participants will also have an opportunity, at a discounted rate, to obtain a skipper license, PADI Scuba Diving Certification, and canoeing and kayaking certifications.
