Numana city of turtles
The Beach is next to the shelter of turtles
The Adriatic sea is rich in loggerhead (“Caretta Caretta” sea turtles..since 2001 Numana has started a cooperation program with the cetacean foundation in Riccione for the rescue of sea turtles. The aim of the project is giving information about the wealth of the Adriatic Sea and creating awareness of good environmental practices. The turtles are saved and rescued and after than they spend a period of rehabilitation in the bay to the hotel. The highst point of the project is the turtle’s release in to the sea after their healing , but in Numana you can take part in many other events and meetings where adults and children can discover stories and secrets about sea turtles and have fun with the mascot Manà.
