“Public excavation” is called the opening of every nest, which is made by trained volunteers of ARCHELON, while the audience is invited to attend the event.

The opening of the nests is always made after a certain number of days when all the baby sea turtles have been incubated.

In this way, it is recorded by ARCHELON the percentage of the incubation success, namely how many baby sea turtles went successfully into the water and how many were not incubated, and for what reason. Sometimes in the nest, there are belated baby sea turtles that are carefully set free by the volunteers of ARCHELON and are led in a certain way to the water, something that excites the observers of the public excavation.
