Caretta Calabria EU LIFE Project

The Life Caretta Calabria project aims at implementing 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 addressed 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.

Under the umbrella of Caretta Calabria EU LIFE Project, we elaborated the operational protocol for beaches management. The operational protocol aims at guiding 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.
