109 dead baby turtles found on a beach in Lauro de Freitas, Brazil #Turtles #Brazil
The businessman Tigo Navilli made an appeal yesterday afternoon (13), on social networks, to the City Hall of Salvador and to the Tamar Project, after rescuing 192 baby sea turtles nestled between the cacti and the grass of Praia do Flamengo. According to him, 83 of them were alive and 109 were dead.
“It was by chance, I noticed a puppy in the sand and I was looking to try to see some more. I noticed a strange noise in the grass and the leaves were shaking. I approached, it was incredible, it looked like ants. I started to take my hand little by little to release it in the sea, until it didn’t work anymore, and I had to put it on my hat ”, he said.
Tigo says that the location, in which he found the young, made it difficult for the turtles to survive and requested that “the responsible bodies take action”.
