Programme for the recovery of the European pond turtle
Participation in the programme for the re-introduction of European pond turtles.
We collaborate with the Agriculture, Environment, Climate Change and Rural Development Department of the Valencian Regional Government on the programme for the re-introduction of European pond turtles (Emys orbicularis) into the Tancats de Milia and l’Illa at the Albufera of Valencia. The specimens released into the wild come from the breeding programme run by the Department. We participate in the monitoring of these turtles through radiotransmitters or re-capture with nets.
