Housing and short history

Action for Wildlife is homed at new settlements at Delta of Axios, 9km of Thessaloniki - Athens.

Following is a short chronicle of the group’s housing adventure.

1990 : Wild animals are treated in volunteers’ houses. First attempts for organised wildlife treatment in a warehouse in Kalohori.

1998 : Organised wildlife treatment as EKPAZ’s first aid station in Thessaloniki in a rented ground floor flat in Ampelokipi.

2000 : Moved to another rented flat in Ampelokipi.

2008 : The Prefecture shuts down the station in Ampoelokipi and wildlife treatment is carried out in volunteers’ houses. This takes a toll on individuals (personal time and money) and on the group (hypofunction of the group), but above all on wildlife treatment.

2009 : Founding of the organisation «Action for Wildlife». Wildlife treatment continues to be carried out in volunteers’ houses but simultaneously efforts to find a roof are intensifying. The state is indifferent with the exception of a few environment-conscious employees.

2010 : «Action for Wildlife» finds a roof in Mikropolis where other groups with shared ideas and activities are active. The group is growing in numbers and participating in many actions.

2014 : The Municipality of Delta builds a place suitable for wildlife treatment and rehabilitation in Sindos which is granted to «Action for Wildlife». Unfortunately, heavy rainfalls have rendered the place temporarily inaccessible.

2015: Temporarily we settle at Social Centre / Immigrants Palce at 23 Ermou street.

December 2015: We move to new settlements at Delta of Axios, 9km Thessaloniki - Athens, next to Sindos. Therefore, you may bring there any injured animals you find.
