Hospital for Greek sea turtles threatened by tourists

More loggerhead sea turtles nest on the Greek Iskands of Zakynthos than anywhere else in the Mediterranean.

Turtles have been nesting on the island for 10,000 years, but an increase in tourism is threatening their survival.

Now a group of sealife centres across the UK has joined forces with a local charity to build a hospital for the injured turtles.

Claudia Sermbezis reports from Zakynthos.
