It will take place on July 6 at 6 PM, and the state of this turtle will be discussed, including the latest observations and laying of eggs, the trend that is expected in the coming years and the key role that volunteering has in the protection of this species.
There will be a discussion about plastics and microplastics present in the waters and what effects they can have on these and other animals on our coasts.
Finally, the book "La tortuga marina de La Pineda", by Ferran Aguilar, will be presented about the loggerhead turtle that nested in La Pineda during 2020.
