The turtle and the tourist

In 1994, during a monitoring and evaluation study carried out in the Meditterenean coasts, it has been discovered that Cirali has a potential nesting place (in addition to the existing 17 significant beaches) for caretta caretta turtle. At the moment, significant turtle beaches have reached 20 or 21 and Cirali is one of them.
