The Marina Port de Mallorca has created an arrangement with the Palma Aquarium Foundation to help aquatic animals in distress, especially sea turtles.

The marina will provide its customers with a container to help collect and transfer marine species, which will be then be recovered by the aquarium.

“In addition to our devotion for the marine world, it is our duty as a nautical company to collaborate with recovery projects so all actions in which man does damage may be amended, and we can continue enjoying this paradise offered by the Balearic Islands,” said Patrick Reynés, director of Marina Port de Mallorca.

Sea turtles are an endangered species that suffers from bycatch and entanglement or ingestion of plastic and other harmful materials.
