The Greek Turtle

I went for a run today and saw this sign.

Tortugas Mora en la vía

I asked my husband who grew up here because I have never seen a turtle in this area. He explained that “la tortuga mora” is an endangered species that got a lot of attention when it blocked the construction of new apartment complexes by the beach.

The construction would have reduced their habitat, their access to food and made them more available to predators.

So you can say that it is thanks to the Greek Turtle that you can enjoy the deserted beaches.
