PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The work camp is in collaboration with WWF Crotone, which runs C.E.L.A. (legal and environmental education centre).
CELA is a building confiscated from the local mafia (N'drangheta) and has now become the symbol of the fight against
organised crime in the province of Crotone.
The WWF of Crotone runs a rescue centre for sea turtles in the Caporizzuto Marine Reserve and an aquarium,
Brief history: the C.E.A.M. (Marine Education Centre) was run by a famous religious association called Misericordia. The
leader of this association, who was also the priest of the island town of Caporizzuto, was imprisoned four years ago
because he was accused of being the boss of the local Mafia organisation. The province of Crotone decided to give
CEAM to WWF Crotone for free, but the lack of money forced the association to open only the sea turtle rescue centre,
while the aquarium remained closed. Fortunately in 2018 WWF Crotone was able to open the aquarium, but they need
the help of many volunteers to clean the tanks.
WORK
The main activity of the camp is related to the aquarium, where volunteers will manage and clean the aquarium "Capo
Rizzuto", as well as restore the fence of the facility. They will also, if necessary, help the vet and local volunteers to take
care of the sea turtles.
During the stay there will be lessons on the history of N'drangheta (name of the local mafia).
