I am a biological sciences student at the University of Surrey and I am currently on my placement year in Lampedusa working at the centre. This has been a totally unique experience and coming here was very much out of my comfort zone, but I have learnt so much about the importance of sea turtle conservation and I’ve met some amazing people during my time here. It’s great to work in an environment where all ideas and suggestions are welcomed and I feel lucky to play a role in the rehabilitation and release of these amazing creatures!
