After a delicate surgery and a period of treatment at the specialist center WWF Lampedusa, now a sea turtle Caretta caretta is back at sea, in freedom. The initiative was developed in cooperation of the Marine Protected Aegadian, the Harbour - Coast Guard Trapani, Favignana, Hunting and Wildlife Division.
Operations for the Liberation of schools attended by pupils of Favignana Rallo, with the aim to sensitize youth on environmental issues and in particular the protection of marine environments.
The animal, collected at sea in September, had a hook stuck in the esophagus, and worst of the long line (called the arm) had small bowel, 7 meters in a meter and a half. The delicate surgery was unsuccessful and the animal after a long convalescence may sail.


The protection activities of the sea Part of a broader national campaign "The Mediterranean is asking you to help" match in July in defense of "mare nostrum". Of all the world's oceans, the Mediterranean Sea occupies less than 1% but it is a little jewel, which has a unique bio-diversity: 8500 species, ie 7.5% of all marine species. A quarter of the species only lives here.


8 are the threats to the Mediterranean and against which focus on the efforts to protect the WWF: Habitat destruction due to fishing, the bycatch of non-target species in fisheries, excessive or indiscriminate fishing, unsustainable tourism , unsustainable urbanization of the coastal strip, introduced alien species, pollution, global climate change.


In the Mediterranean, well-managed marine protected areas are considered universally the best means to preserve biodiversity, and so the WWF Italy disseminate best management practices. In view of the release, the new Director of the Marine Protected Area, Stefano Donati, said: "The liberation of AMP in the waters of a specimen of Caretta caretta, species protected at Community level but yet still highly endangered, is a symbolic event It is also the sign of the revival of protection activities in this unique and beautiful stretch of sea. restore to the natural life as an animal means to make sense of words spent during all of 2010, the UN Year of Biodiversity. "


Expressing its satisfaction, the Mayor and Chairman of the Area of Favignana MarinaProtetta, Lucio Antinoro said "Thanks again for your valuable WWF daily commitment and the Port for their support to our efforts. The AMP will continue with determination on this road, from collaborative projects with local fishermen, in the launch phase. "
