Dead turtles on the beaches of Larnaca province

The incidents of dead turtles washed up by the sea in the last two weeks on the beaches of Ormidia, Oroklini and Agios Theodoros in the province of Larnaca cause sadness and disgust. The provincial secretary of the Movement of Ecologists in Larnaca, Andreas Soseilos, in a written statement states that the Department of Fisheries and Marine Research has already been informed about the incident, which was asked in addition to the simple registration of deaths to investigate which will demonstrate the exact causes that led the turtles to death. However, as the Ecologists complain, such a process has not yet taken place.

“Apart from the simple recording of the deaths, it is imperative to immediately pursue the implementation of a program for conducting an autopsy on each dead sea turtle washed away, as well as for the recording of any findings that it will indicate. Only in this way can the right scientific conclusions be drawn, which will lead to the implementation of correct measures to prevent further deaths, so that the population of the loggerhead turtle and the green turtle, which are an endangered species in the Mediterranean, can not only be preserved. but also to recover “, it is noted in the announcement of the Ecologists Movement. However, the spectacle of dead turtles on the beaches of Larnaca province lately has been really disgusting, according to the complaints of citizens who located the turtles.

In fact, fears and concerns are expressed about such incidents in the immediate future if the real cause of death is not ascertained and if immediate measures are not taken to avoid such tragic incidents.
