TurtleECOLOGISTS in Cadiz are winning the battle to preserve the ocean’s loggerhead sea turtles.

Since 2008, 188 injured sea turtles have been treated in Algeciras before being returned to the waters.

A spokesman for the centre said 60% of injuries sustained are ‘because of man’.

“Most of the injuries sustained are shell related,” he added. “Unfortunately most of the injuries come as a direct result of human activities.

“But on the flip side we are doing very well and have a 79% success rate.”
