Pedra Badejo, Sep 10 (Inforpress) – The Minister of Agriculture and Environment was satisfied with the spawning campaign and work carried out in the preservation of sea turtles, stressing that there is a common understanding about the role of each in the preservation of the species.
Gilberto Silva, who spoke to Inforpress, in Areia Grande beach, in Santa Cruz, on the sidelines of a visit carried out as part of the spawning campaign, assured that “things are going well”, with NGOs with “more robustness” in their work, indicating that the country has already identified about 140 thousand nests.
“There is great hope and goodwill from the partners in this cause”, he guaranteed, indicating that more than 95 percent (%) of the spawning takes place in shallow islands such as Boa Vista, Sal, Maio and Santa Luzia, hence the “great attention” to these places.
The minister defended the need to continue raising awareness so that Cabo Verde can have a culture of non-consumption of turtles, saving public resources for inspection, which could be used in other areas such as education, health, culture, sports and infrastructure. structuring.
