Bolivia Releases Baby Turtles into Amazonian River

LA PAZ – More than 70,000 baby turtles were released on Tuesday into a river in the Bolivian Amazon as part of a conservation program.

The release took place at the San Pedro River in a ceremony attended by President Evo Morales and the governor of the northeastern province of Beni, Alex Ferrier.

“When there is will, when there is a decision, it is possible to conserve our heritage,” Morales said, praising the conservation efforts in Beni, which borders Brazil.

The program involves locating turtle nests on riverbanks, caring for the eggs and safeguarding the young turtles until they develop a shell sufficiently hard to protect them from predecessors.

Beni’s initiative is focused on two turtle species that are in danger of extinction, state news agency ABI said.
