Area delimited and prohibited for bathing

(ANSA) – PINETO, 14 SEPT – The Coast Guard has delimited, cordoned off and temporarily banned bathing this morning an area of ​​free beach that falls within the protected marine area (Amp) of Torre del Cerrano on the border between the municipalities of Silvi and Pineto. The measure was adopted after the detection of a nest of a turtle of the caretta caretta species. In the next few days the eggs will hatch and for this reason many small turtles are expected to be born. The agents of the Municipal Police of Pineto, the mayor Robert Verrocchio and the staff of the Cetacean Studies Center of Pescara took to the place.
The nest, located in the C1 area of ​​the Amp on the border between the municipalities of Pineto and Silvi, is the first documented case of nesting in the Marine Protected Area and the second in Abruzzo after that of Roseto degli Abruzzi in 2013. (ANSA).
