Security forces guard cardón turtle nesting in Naiguatá

The eggs were transferred to a protected beach, located in the Camurí Grande Club, where they must remain for 60 days.

A turtle of the cardón species measuring 1.75 meters long by 85 centimeters wide arrived at Rompehuesos beach, in the Naiguatá parish, on Wednesday night, which was quickly alerted to the authorities.

Members of the La Guaira Police, belonging to the Sectoral Secretariat of Citizen Security, together with Secretary Andrés Goncalves himself, arrived at the site in order to guard the spawning of this endangered species. Also officials from the PNB Aquatic Police.

Representatives of the Ministry of Ecosocialism in the region and protectionists from the Camurí Grande Sea Turtle Guardians group came to the site, who were in charge of extracting the eggs: in total there were 113 distributed into 70 fertile and 43 infertile.

Subsequently and with due security measures, the eggs were transferred to a protected beach, in this case the one located at the Camurí Grande Club, where they must remain for 60 days, the time in which it is estimated that they will hatch for their subsequent release.

The call to citizens is to become protectors of the environment and fauna, in this case marine fauna. And this policy is part of the guidelines given by Governor @josealejandro.teran regarding the care of the earth and its species.
