The Fuerteventura Cabildo, through the Ministry of the Environment, directed by Marlene Figueroa, released today, Thursday, July 30, a specimen of the loggerhead turtle ( Caretta Caretta ) in Las Playitas, in the municipality of Tuineje. The animal was released after its recovery at the Morro Jable Turtle Recovery and Conservation Center.

In the release of the turtle, the Minister of Environment of the Cabildo of Fuerteventura, Marlene Figueroa, the Mayor of Tuineje, Esther Hernández, and the Councillor for the Environment, Vicente García, were present.

The turtle appeared stranded on March 11, in the Rosa del Agua area in Puerto del Rosario, presenting entanglement. The specimen was recovered thanks to the notice of a citizen.

The Minister for the Environment, Marlene Figueroa, highlighted the importance of citizen collaboration as one of the fundamental factors in the conservation of the species. In the case of sighting an injured specimen, it is necessary to give notice to 112.

The counsellor has also warned of the need to keep beaches clean, being the presence of plastics and other waste in the sea one of the main threats to this species. The Ministry recommends reducing the use of plastic products, especially single-use ones, as well as disposing of waste in a responsible way. The residues that most affect sea turtles are those derived from plastics, such as fishing gear, bags, containers, the rings of cans or straws.


Balance of 2020

So far this year, a total of 28 sea turtles, 27 of the Caretta Caretta species and one specimen of the Leatherback turtle ( Dermochelys coriacea) have appeared stranded on the coasts of the Island .

Of the 28 specimens that have appeared, 15 have been found stranded alive and the Morro Jable Turtle Recovery and Conservation Center has been transferred for proper care. Once admitted to the center, they are diagnosed to apply the appropriate treatment for each condition, with an average stay of between one and three months. The most common causes for entering the center are derived from human action: entanglements or ingestion of drifting garbage (fishing tackle, raffia, plastics), ingestion or adhesion of oil and other toxic substances, accidental fishing and collision with boats.

This 2020, the Ministry of Environment has released to the sea after its recovery a total of 9 turtles, all of the species Caretta Caretta , one of them entered the centre in 2018, four in 2019 and five in 2020.

The first specimen was collected on April 14 in Las Salinas (municipality of Antigua), with symptoms of thinness and dehydration, as well as gills with raffia in the left front and rear fins, neck and milder gill in the right front fin. The animal is now released with a weight of 4.15 kilograms.

After their release, both turtles return to their natural environment, within the framework of the 'Back home' project of the Cabildo's environmental education program, which tries to raise awareness about the release of rugged and recovered fauna.
The Minister of Environmental Sustainability, Lola García, stressed the importance of citizen collaboration for the conservation of the species and recalled that it is necessary to notify 112 in the case of a sighting. The island official recalled that the waste that most affects sea turtles is derived from plastics, warning about the need to reduce their use and dispose of waste responsibly.
Likewise, Lola García and Pedro Martínez thanked the trainees for their magnificent work during this summer training period, a time in which they have developed functions in social networks, the elaboration of a floristic guide of natural parks of Fuerteventura and the collaboration in a report of invasive species and rugged fauna, among other tasks. They also learned about the areas of the project for the recovery of steppe bird habitats, facilities of the Oasis Wildlife Fuerteventura and participated in the Cofete revegetation project, as well as AVANFUER workshops.
