News from "The furrowed Turtle" project

The rain falls have been regular. The usually dry Ferlo landscape has been transformed in a green herbaceous carpet. Furthermore, all the pond basins of the Ferlo are filled with water allowing each turtle to access water and food next to its hole.

Abou had the chance to discover two distinct baby turtles on two following days. They are 3 to 4 years old. These two baby turtles confirm our successful reintroduction of the turtles to the wild life, which we supposed when a month ago we discovered turtles’ eggs. Moreover, the two baby turtles demonstrate their capability to survive in the difficult environment of the Ferlo with numerous predators (jackals, mongoose, birds, etc.).
