Good News for the furrowed turtle (sulcata) in Senegal!

Posted 18.10.2013 - View comments

Thanks to the ONOMO Airport Hotel in Dakar and 4 individual donors from Senegal and Germany, the SOS Sulcata-Team is now able to purchase basic work equipment. The equipment will be used for daily observation of the habits and to monitor the general wellbeing of the turtles, which were reintroduced to their natural habitat of the Ferlo.

Furthermore, the donation will finance nature excursions for Ranérou’s school children to the Ferlo natural reserve and so help create awareness among the young generation about the protection of the biodiversity. A few years from now, they will be the ones to make important decisions for their region and its conservation will be based on the knowledge they have acquired.

The reintroduction and the monitoring of turtles in the Ferlo combined with the nature excursions will help to prevent the total disappearance of the Sulcata turtle in Senegal.

Once again a big THANK YOU to ONOMO Airport Hotel, its guests and to the individual donors from Germany and Senegal!

Our future is green!
