Italy 2021: a new breeding season with excellent results

In 2021, the monitoring of the beaches carried out by the operators of the Euroturtles project allowed the identification of 63 nests, a little less than in 2020 but still a good news that confirms the increase in nests on the Italian coasts. Ultimately, Sicily is confirmed as the most important Italian region for Caretta caretta reproduction, along with Calabria, and, therefore, it will be necessary to continue efforts to consolidate and implement the achieved results. In the coming years, WWF Italy will carry on the monitoring activities during the breeding season with its network of operators and volunteers.
