The day before the discovery, about 15 animals were born between the bathers.
One of the animals is hospitalized at “Ospedale delle Tartarughe – Carmine Di Silvestro –” located in the “Capitaneria di Porto” di Montesilvano (Pescara), and managed by Centro Studi Cetacei Onlus.
At the moment, the volunteers of Centro Studi Cetacei Onlus, WWF Abruzzo and Protected Marine Area “Torre del Cerrano” are monitoring the nest 24h.
The finding is very important because it is the first documented nesting site in the Italian Adriatic coast at these latitudes.
On the 21st of September, the turtle hospitalized at Centro Studi Cetacei has been released back into the sea.
