The HOS kiosk in Pothia (capital city of Kalymnos) had a successful season in its first year of operation as part of HOS"s Falco eleonorae project. It was inaugurated on July 13th and Irini Mailli - a native of Kalymnos - was there every day from 19:00 till 23:00, until September 15th. Her duties included:


  • Informing the locals as well as the tourists and the occasional climber about the Falco eleonorae project and the importance of the Greek islands for this rare and threatened species,
  • Liasing with the local Tourist Authority and professionals from the island"s tourist sector who organise boat tours of the islets around Kalymnos,
  • Giving out information material (leaflets) about the project, and
  • Training the project’s volunteers.

    A total of nine volunteers helped Irini with the everyday running of the kiosk, mainly pupils from the island"s secondary schools and also young volunteers from other parts of Greece.
