DelTa Rescue is a working group that includes several associations and organizations in the Ferrara area (Emilia Romagna – North Adriatic – Italy) in order to rescue sea turtles and implement species conservation. Over 120 people participated last year in two courses on sea turtle conservation and first-aid practices in order to train volunteers. Our partner Fondazione Cetacea coordinates the working group and trained volunteers.
Last year Delta Rescue opened in Goro the Sea Turtle Rescue Centre, which yesterday has finally completed all the bureaucratic procedures and obtained all the permits, and now it can start operating!
