Turtles rescue program
The Aquarium of Lanzarote supports also a program related to the turtles rescue.
Pollution is a huge problem and a lot of turtles are blocked in plastic and rubbish. If they are lucky, they are rescued and brought to the vet for a control.
Once the wounds have been cured, the turtles are moved to the aquarium , so that they can recover. During their stay, they are visited by vets and they are also feeded.
Turtles who succed in recovering can be released inthe sea, while the others that need more cures, are not suitable to come back to the sea. In this case, they will stay safe in the Aquarium, far away from the rubbish.
