Nova Sintra, Jul 13 (Inforpress) – The Biflores Association has already monitored two turtle nests at Cadjetinha Beach, in the town of Furna, in Brava island, something had not happened for several years.
This information was given to Inforpress by the director of the association, Cristina Coletto, explaining that for some years there have been no nests of turtles in the island, but “fortunately”, at this time there have been two nests, which represents “a lot”.
“Having turtle nests here means they’re coming back, so we have to work hard with the communities to protect the nests and not scare away the turtles,” said the officer, pointing out that the team will also go to Portete Beach to check if there is no nest.
And, to ensure the spawning season occurs in greater tranquility, the association is teaching awareness actions in the localities of Furna and Fajã d’Água, as a way to involve the community itself in the preservation of species, demonstrating the importance of having them around.
