The 'turtle' (<i>e helona</i>, here emphatically used in the generalizing singular) stands for the Mediterranean loggerhead turtle,1 a species of sea turtle threatened with extinction. Engaged in a bitter dispute over the politics of turtle conservation, Vassilikiots do not have the most sympathetic attitude towards this particular species. Parts of their land have already become a natural reserve for the reproduction of the turtles, while the formal establishment of a Marine National Park in the wider area prohibits some Vassilikiots from building on their landed property and engaging in tourism-related enterprises. Unsurprisingly, those measures have incited considerable local protest against environmental conservation.
