Description
During the National Environmental Day (5 June 2013) a turtle named Rughetta was released at the Brancaleone beach (Reggio Calabria. Rughetta is a turtle that had problems and so she was helped by the biologists of the Centro Recupero Tartarughe Marine, funded by CTS (Centro Turistico Studentesco e Giovanile. Thanks to the collaboration with the University of Pisa, a satellite transmitter has been installed on her shell, and so we can now follow her movements and understand her behaviour. more
