Il 5 giugno 2013, in occasione della Giornata Nazionale dell'Ambiente, presso la spiaggia di Brancaleone (RC) e' stata liberata Rughetta, una tartaruga in difficolta' salvata dai biologi del Centro Recupero Tartarughe Marine CTS di Brancaleone. Grazie ad una collaborazione con l'Universita' di Pisa, un apparecchio satellitare e' stato posizionato sul carapace dell'esemplare, ed e' ora possibile seguire gli spostamenti studiandone quindi il comportamento.

During the National Environmental Day (5 June 2013) a turtle named Rughetta was released at the Brancaleone beach (Reggio Calabria. Rughetta is a turtle that had problems and so she was helped by the biologists of the Centro Recupero Tartarughe Marine, funded by CTS (Centro Turistico Studentesco e Giovanile. Thanks to the collaboration with the University of Pisa, a satellite transmitter has been installed on her shell, and so we can now follow her movements and understand her behaviour.
