Mr. Demetropoulos successfully campaigned for the establishment of Cyprus' first national park in the Akamas peninsula in 1986 and the protection of breeding grounds for the endangered green and loggerhead turtles.

In 1989 new regulations under the fisheries legislation were approved by government and the house of representatives, protecting about 10 km of coastline incorporating the much-coveted turtle nesting beaches of Lara and Toxeftra in the Akamas.
