Our Green Awards

We are proud to have been awarded both the Green Key Award for our Eco-Friendly Practices as well as the Monachous monachous seal privation award. As part of our ongoing commitment, we are dedicated to developing our environmental policies further.

Fiscardonna is also involved in the Monachous monachous protection plan. 3% OF OUR ANNUAL REVENUE IS DONATED FOR THE PROTECTION OF MONACHOUS MONACHOUS SEAL! 

The sea between Fiscardo and Ithaki, where the water is 165m deep, is home to the Mediterranean Seal (Monachus monachus). Its existence was mentioned by Homer. It takes refuge in sea-caves and lives on fish and octopuses. It usually gives birth to only one pup. This likeable animal is threatened with extinction, due in part to illegal fishing practices, but mainly to the development of tourism. It is the duty of each one of us to avoid disturbing the seals and to report to the authorities anything we think may be harmful to the defenseless animals.
