The Aegean Wildlife Hospital (ALKIONI) is an NGO for the care of protection of wild animals, founded in Paros in 1995. It has a two-fold aim:
- The care and rehabilitation of all wild animals that end up in its premises injured, sick or exhausted,
- The protection of wildlife through environmental education, raising awareness, performing researches and legal procedures where necessary.
The running of the hospital depends on volunteers.
Bird releasing is the utter goal of Alkioni and a heart-lifting event kids and adults alike would enjoy and profit from.
