Return of the sea turtle Careta Careta Louisa after her recovery to her natural environment on Tuesday 09/08/2012 at Aquila Rithymna Beach hotel
For many years, Aquila Hotels & Resorts, have adopted a comprehensive environmental policy and continue to improve environmental implementation through innovative actions and dynamic initiatives, ensuring recognition of both local and international environmental agencies.
The close collaboration with ARCHELON, the Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece, along with the coordinated efforts of our hotels in Rethymno, Aquila Rithymna Beach & Aquila Porto Rethymno, have resulted in the continued presence of this protected species with numerous nests on our beach every year.
Aquila Rithymna Beach assisted by Aquila Porto Rethymno took the initiative to adopt a seriously injured sea turtle Caretta-Caretta, found in June by a local fisherman on a coast nearby and treated at the Rescue Center of ARCHELON. It is not the first time that Aquila Hotels & Resorts support the work of the Sea Turtle Protection Society.
The sea turtle Release Event, organized by the management of Aquila Hotels & Resorts, the eco team of Aquila Rithymna Beach and the volunteers of ARCHELON, was held at the beach of Aquila Rithymna Beach, on Thursday 9th August at 11:00 in the morning, and was attended by Municipal members and Coast Guard representatives, local television reporters and customers of Aquila Hotels & Resorts.
