Great news!!! The first caretta-caretta turtle arrived last night on the beach of PANAGHIA and made the first nest of the season. HURRAH!! Our friends Kosta and Asimos, always early risers, arriving in Panaghia notice the tracks, clearly visible, of a turtle that drags itself under the dunes and digs its nest. They immediately inform their friend Enrico by sending him some photos. Enrico suggests to delimit the nest with small woods, to prevent any person from disturbing or damaging the nest. Kostas and Asimos diligently and professionally cordon off the nest. WELL DONE!
Enrico sends an email to the competent authorities so that they can come and check the nest.
In the afternoon, directly from Vietnam, Angelo arrives on the beach and writes to Enrico “Just arrrived at the beach, here is the welcome … you can still see the traces of the turtle getting in and out of the water.”
We really have friends who are lovers of Nature and turtles.
As agreed with Kostas and Asimos we named this turtle “BELLA”. Why? In memory of BELLA, their friendly wolfdog that used to entertain us on the beach in summer… and that was even canoeing.
We will keep you updated. The baby turtles will be born between 45 and 65 days from now… and it will be a great joy.
