Institute of Marine Conservation

Archipelagos Institute of Marine Conservation is a non-profit, non-governmental organization committed to researching and defending the biodiversity of the Greek seas and islands, as well as the entire eastern Mediterranean.

Since 1998, Archipelagos has focused on a combination of multidisciplinary scientific research and efficient conservation work in which local communities play an active part.

This cooperation creates a strategic foundation that enables and strengthens the activities of Archipelagos at the local, national and European level, allowing us to protect aquatic and terrestrial life against ever-increasing human factors.
