"Improvements in the Centre of Preservation of Marine Turtles "
The Education and University Council of the Canarian Government put in place the initiative of school paths with Jable in order to improve the space that welcomes Loggerhead Turtles (Carreta carreta) within the project of reintroduction of this species by the Cabildo. Therefore, they have installed a new tank of nine metres by four metres and 1,5 metres high that was financed by the States and ordered by the general department of Environment Quality and Evaluation within the Service of Preservation of Wild and Threatened Fauna Populations. The Cabildo's president, Marcial Morales and the Environment Councillor, Natalia Évora, recently visited the centre in Morro Jable. The other tanks of this centre have also been renovated over the past few years in order to adapt to the size of some specimens that have increased in size and weight so that they get more space.
