Beautiful moments of young turtles making their way from a Latchi beach into the sea have been captured on video and posted on Facebook by Savvas Keleshis with the simple message: Save the turtles, Caretta caretta, Green turtles.

As one commentator notes underneath the post, the video is a fitting answer to all those who want to place umbrellas on the Cyprus’ turtle nesting beaches as it testifies as to why these beaches must be protected with zero human intervention.

Inia community council is planning a protest at Lara beach on Sunday as it lobbies for changes in the law to allow umbrellas on what is perhaps Cyprus’ most important turtle nesting beach.

This demand that has been rejected by the government and environmentalists and the Animal Party Cyprus is planning a counter-protest on the same day.
