3 sea turtles have been found dead on the same day across Almería’s beaches.
Experts from Equinac, the sea life people, are unsure why the three turtles died but say the fact they were all found on the same day was a coincidence. Samples have been sent off to a lab for analysis, but they don’t think the deaths were caused by plastic bags.
Caretta caretta as they’re known are a species on the verge of extinction, mainly due to the fact they gulp down plastic bags and then suffocate.
The turtles come after last weeks finding of a dead whale in Mojácar and two dead dolphins.
