Diego Rosman returns to Photo/Foto with a documentary piece that is very close to his heart:

“Four years ago I decided to take my love for nature and animals and to start volunteering in the Israeli Sea Turtle Rescue Center and to document the work and rehabilitation process of the sea turtles.

The center was established in 1999 by the Nature and Parks Authority, which is responsible for protecting wild animals in Israel, in order to rehabilitate and restore injured sea turtles after recovery. Since its establishment, the center has treated more than 700 turtles, mainly brown and green turtles – seventy percent of which were later released back to the open sea.

The Rescue Center works to rehabilitate the populations of local sea turtles in a variety of ways: coastal surveys are carried out by inspectors to locate and protect nests in danger, by maintaining a breeding nucleus of this species, through research, education, public relations and by raising the media profile – they also conduct guided tours of the center. It should be noted that the treatment of rehabilitated turtles relies heavily on the help of volunteers.

The center operates in the Mevo’ot Yam school and has designated seawater pools in which the injured sea turtles are kept.”

Enjoy…
