Aquarium Piran, Golob d.o.o. and Morigenos invite you to join us for a special event the release of a young marine turtle back into the wild. In June, Morigenos researchers found and rescued an exhausted loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta). The turtle was brought to Piran where Dr. Zlatko Golob, a veterinarian specialist, examined and treated it. Since then, the turtle has been recovering in Aquarium Piran. The time has come to return it back into the wild. University of Primorska, which runs the international project NETCET and carries out satellite tracking of turtles in the Adriatic Sea, will participate in the event. The Institute of the Republic of Slovenia for Nature Conservation, Marine biology station Piran and Institute Biocen also participate in research and conservation of turtles in Slovenia.
The event will take place on Tuesday, 17th of September 2013 at 10:00 on the beach in front of theatre Tartini in Piran.
