The “Numana City of the Turtles” project was born thanks to the ten – years collaboration between Numana district and the Cetacea Foundation of Riccione.
Few people know that the medium – high part of the Adriatic sea is very rich of turtles of the loggerhead family. One of the most popular question among the tourist visiting the Rescue Center is “where do you get them?”
The aim of the project is to inform the users of the coast about the treasures of the Adriatic sea and particularly of the permanent presence (and not random) of the loggerhead turtles in the Conero bay.
The core moment of the project is the release of the recovered turtles in the sea: those are the so called liberations made from the rehabilitation area named “the bay”.
It is well known that lately the good environmental protection practice has become an added value: tourism, in fact, is no more seen only as the staying in a place where you can relax, have fun and enjoy the services but as the research of new strong experiences.
