Background

La giovane tartaruga Wave è stata catturata accidentalmente da una motonave attrezzata per la pesca a strascico a largo di Ravenna il 16 dicembre 2015. La tartaruga presentava varie escoriazioni al cranio con esposizione ossea, probabilmente dovute agli attrezzi da pesca. Dopo un periodo di cure è stata rilasciata a largo del porto di Ancona. Al rilascio Wave pesava 15,7 kg con una lunghezza curva del carapace di 52 cm.
La Regione Marche tramite la Rete di conservazione delle tartarughe e la Fondazione Cetacea, nell’ambito del progetto europeo Adriatic+, ha provveduto al rilascio della tartaruga.
