Under the umbrella of Caretta Calabria EU LIFE Project, SETIN srl elaborated the operational protocol for beaches management.
The project Life Caretta Calabria aims to implement multiple and integrated actions for the conservation of the most important nesting area of the loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) in Italy, located in the Ionian coast of Calabria. The project will address the main threats occurring both at land and at sea, and will propose an integrated approach between institutions and stakeholders, suitable for different local contexts at different levels of the life cycle of this species.
The operational protocol aims to guide the elaboration of the beaches plans, to better conserve Caretta Caretta Marine Turtle, and to provide recommendations and regulations to manage touristic activities in sustainable way.
Leaded by Valeria Scopelliti, the elaboration of operational protocol was coordinated by Alessandro Piazzi. Giacomo Cozzolino was part of the project team.
