Porto Inglês, Aug 23 (Inforpress) – The Maio Biodiversity Sea Turtle Patrol and Protection Coordinator said today that the NGO has registered over 4000 nests, when the sea turtle protection season is almost halfway through.
Speaking to Inforpress, Leno dos Passos said that so far “everything is going smoothly”, stressing that the mid-term balance “is positive”.
He said he is getting a lot of participation from all communities, including partnerships from nine social groups and community associations that send two members per night.
According to Leno dos Passos, this number means 40 percent (%), compared with last year, when the NGO recorded a boom in turtle nests, but nevertheless considers the campaign is already going to be positive mid-term, as it is expected to end in mid-October.
