The beauty of this new space reflects that turtles are an amazing species that lived along dinosaurs and witnessed the birth of the Homo Sapiens.
Today, they need our help and protection as the human impact on Oceans is a real threat.
Boat collisions, fishing nets, overfishing and plastic debris are only a few items in the long list of things that are harming them and that are at the root of their population’s steep decline.
That is why the Oceanographic Institute is now opening this Care Center that will treat not only turtles but also other marine species like seahorses.
The Center counts on people at sea to report to them animals in need. They will then treat them and put them in a rehabilitation before releasing them in the Oceans once they are well enough.
