Calheta Funda Three - Free at last

Congratulations to all involved from the Camara Municipal do Sal and the Maritime Police on the liberation of three loggerhead yearlings who have been kept in captivity and displayed in Calheta Funda. You can see how happy the police delegate is! The turtles were in good shape so three of the rangers carried them beyond the surf zone to make sure they got well away from the shore. The little turtles are finally back where they belong! More photos
