Last Saturday we organized an opened doors day to show our “Mountain Olive Plantation” Project and release Mediterranean Turtles.
We did enjoy a wonderful day in this typical Mediterranean environment, always accompanied by donkeys (our ecological mower) that delighted children and adults.
The CRARC (Reptiles and Amphibians Catalan Recovery Center) biologists offered an interesting talk on the Mediterranean Turtle biology, just before releasing 30 of them in the TRENCA landstate. This is part of the Reinforcement Project of the Reintroduction of the Mediterranean Turtle in the Montsant Natural Park. More than 50 turtles were released last year in the same area, and we already saw juveniles born in the wild!
We also had a guided walk through the landstate, explaining our biodiversity projects with the ecological oil, even offering a tasting. All the children and adults assisting to the event had two books, edited by TRENCA, about the Hedgehog and the wetllands of Lleida province.
