CNA - Cyprus/LARNAKA 12/09/2018 17:40


A green turtle, which was found wounded in Limassol last June, has since healed under the care of the Fisheries and Maritime Research Department and was returned to the sea, in the presence of Agriculture, Rural Development and Environment Minister Costas Kadis, on Wednesday.

In statements after the turtle, symbolically named “Eleftheria” (Liberty), was released, Kadis expressed his satisfaction.

The conservation of the biodiversity and marine diversity in general is included in our priorities, he said.
