FOCUS "WITH A MEMORY LIKE A SEA TURTLE" NEW 2020/2021
The Mediterranean Sea is an extraordinary habitat rich in life and of presiding environments: for this reason it is a heritage to safeguard through important national and international actions and initiatives such as the establishment of the Cetacean Sanctuary Pelagos, the creation of the Marine protected areas and The Tuscan Oobservatory for the Biodiversity, with which Acquario di Livorno collaborates with its Recovery and Reabilitation centre for Marine Turtles.
Just like the terrestrial ones, the sea turtles also have a formidable memory, kept not only in their brains, but also in every single cell of their body.
In fact, the study of their skin allow us, thanks to their longevity, to have a good idea of the evolution of the environment in which they live: for this reason, the Caretta caretta in particular have been elected by the scientific community "a symbol species" of the Mediterranean Sea.
Let's try not to miss the opportunity to know thes extraordinary animals, studying the biology of the 3 species present in the Mediterranean Sea, discovering their habits, characteristics and common points with our species.
We will learn how to recognize them, report their present to the authorities and possibly help them in case of difficulty. We therefore become the "true friends of the sea turtles"

The Mediterranean Sea is the second area in the world with the higest rate of biodiversity after the Amazon forest, for that reason it must be protected through important national and international actions such as the institution of the Pèlagos Cetacean Sanctuary, the creation of the Marine Protected Areas and, within the Tuscany Region, with the establishment of the Tuscan Observatory for Biodiversity, of which Acquario di Livorno has become the Information Point.
To inform citizens and tourists is the first step to start "all together" to protect this priceless treasure, wictim of anthropic activities.
Students can be the way of this change! Become a Champion of Biodiversity with us, learning to make concrete actions to share with your friend in order to protect the Mare Nostrum.
