Avola: another “Friends of the turtles” municipality in Sicily

In June 2021 a new municipality adopted protection and awareness measures for sea turtles – the Municipality of Avola, in the province of Syracuse, which approved a resolution to place specific notice boards on the beaches suitable for turtle nesting and to develop awareness actions. After Noto, we now have another Sicilian municipality among the “Friends of the turtles”. Policy action will continue in the other municipalities for them to adopt specific protection regulations.
