São Vicente: Biosfera hopes to mobilize more than 20 volunteers for turtle spawning season

Mindelo, Apr 5 (Inforpress) – The environmental association Biosfera 1 expects to mobilize more than 20 volunteers for the turtle spawning season in Santa Luzia between mid-June and late October, said the marine biologist Patrícia Rendall this Thursday.

To this end, according to this official, she announced to Inforpress, applications are already open since last Monday and last until the end of May, something done “earlier” this year due to several requests from foreign candidates, who asked for more time to organize the trips and schedule.

“For every field season, we count on having 20 volunteers in total, but we do not exclude anyone, because the more, the better and always remain as substitutes, since we do not know what can happen”, said Patricia Rendall, for example, the “surprises” of the field like the one that happened last year, in which they registered an “extraordinary activity” of spawning of about five thousand nests.

The Biosphere 1 action focuses on every deserted island of Santa Luzia, but with incidence in the beaches of Achados and Francisca, the ones with greater number of nests.
