The spirit of Fluidra has always featured the coexistence of our work with a marked sensitivity for the environment in which we live. For that reason, Fluidra has been partnering with the CRAM Center for Marine Animal Recovery in Catalonia, Spain for over three years, helping it in its work of rescuing and caring for marine fauna by maintaining and supplying the materials it needs to operate.
This renowned conservation center has recently focused on sea turtles and the dangers threatening their extinction. That’s why some time ago it planned the construction of a turtle nursery, a facility requiring very meticulous control and conservation. To achieve it, it had to be fitted with high-quality precision materials, specifically filter systems, PVC accessory parts and numerous heat pumps that Fluidra was able to provide in order to protect the highly vulnerable loggerhead sea turtle.
A loggerhead sea turtle lay 173 eggs on a beach in Mataró (Spain) on 15 June and CRAM collected 40 of the eggs to hatch in the nursery, built with the collaboration of the Fluidra Foundation.
The egg laying on the Spanish coast was a cause for celebration for marine biologists as this species of turtle is at serious risk of extinction. That’s why the birth of new turtles is essential for the survival of the species.
CRAM’s work is critical in these cases as the collection of eggs and subsequent incubation and care are essential for observation and research into the species which is crucial to successful conservation.
