CARETTA CARETTA TURTLES and the reserve Ervatao by Gennaro Cascella

From June to late October, the third most important colony in the world of Caretta Caretta nests in the south-east of the island, focusing on the beach Ervatao.
But this place offers not only the spectacle of spawning and hatching of turtles, a walk in the ribeira leads us to explore the gardens, coconut palms, banana trees, date palms and giant baobab, a gentle giant that to be able to squeeze in a hug, it takes at least eight people!
Its foliage pointing to the east shows us how the model of constant winds and molds these lands to their liking.
