"Students from the CEIP Morro Jable and Pablo Neruda schools participate in the release of turtles"

Around sixty students from CEIP Morro Jable primary school participated in the release of a marine turtle on the beach of La Cebada of Morro Jable, organised by the Cabildo of Fuerteventura. The turtle was found in October 2018 in Gran Tarajal in the municipality of Tuineje, when it was caught in nets. After recovering in the Recuperation and Preservation Centre of Marine Turtles of Morro Jable, that depends from the Cabildo, the animal that weighed 7,4 kilos was released at sea. Another group, of more than seventy pupils from the infant school CEIP Pablo Neruda, participated in the release of a turtle in Playa Blanca, Puerto del Rosario.

This time, the turtle was found in January 2019 in the area of Esquinzo when it got caught in nets and has stains of oil on its skin. The turtle was taken to the Recuperation and Preservation Centre of Marine Turtles and was released when it weighed 5,3 kilos. The release of turtles with pupils is part of the programme of awareness of the Environment Council of Fuerteventura's Cabildo.
