2 green turtles at the CESTMed

In early September 2014, two green turtles were accidentally caught off the Salins de Giraud … it is an exceptional fact, green turtles are very rare in the Mediterranean sea!
Since 1979, only 4 observations of this species have been recorded near our shores.
These young turtles showed no injuries have been released off Grau du Roi at the end of September.

The biggest may be followed by a pop-up tag that will come off automatically and will provide us with valuable information … maybe can we solve the mystery of their presence on our shores!
