Travel with “Tortuga Lola”

A group of researchers from the Campus Gandia, under the direction of Eduardo Belda, are taking part in a satellite tagging project studying the behavior, habitat use and survival of captive-bred and rehabilitated loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta). The study is being carried out in collaboration with the Generalitat Valenciana, the University of Valencia, the Oceanogràfic […]

A Spectacle of Nature

The nesting of loggerhead turtles (caretta caretta) on Valencian beaches has been in the news this summer. It’s no wonder, since up to eight nests have been discovered on our beaches, which is a record high. And the nesting and subsequent hatching of the eggs has been one of the most beautiful spectacles that nature […]

Record Nesting of Sea Turtles

In the last decade, western Mediterranean beaches have been experiencing an increase in the frequency of loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) nestings. This increase may correspond to a process of colonization of the species as a consequence of climate change, something that is considered to be of great importance for their survival due to evidence and […]

New Prototypes for Monitoring Marine Species and Habitats

The LIFE IP INTEMARES project, coordinated by the Fundación Biodiversidad, with the participation of researchers from Campus Gandia of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), aims to achieve a network of efficiently managed and innovative Natura 2000 marine spaces, with the active participation of relevant sectors and using research as basic decision-making tools. During the […]

New PhD Program in Marine and Coastal Science and Technology

Campus Gandia of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) launches the new PhD Program in Marine and Coastal Science and Technology starting in the 2022-2023 term. Education in science and applications for the marine and coastal environment The PhD Program in Marine and Coastal Science and Technology is aimed at advanced students with an interest […]

Return of the Loggerhead Turtles

In recent decades, the preservation of the loggerhead sea turtle or Caretta caretta has raised great concern due to the escalation of environmental threats, many of them caused by the negative impact of human activity on the marine environment. In addition to the effects of marine pollution, specifically the presence of marine debris consisting mainly […]

The Conservation of Sea Turtles is Nearing

Captive breeding of newborn turtles and protection and relocation of nests would contribute to the conservation of loggerhead sea turtles, Caretta caretta, in our waters. This is one of the conclusions found in the first follow-up study conducted on the behavior of post-hatchling turtles in the Mediterranean that was recently published in the Marine Biology journal.

Celebrating 3 Years Disseminating Campus Gandia Research

After more than 1,000 days since the launch of the science website project for the Campus Gandia  of the Universitat Politècnica de València, we think that now is an appropriate time for stocktaking. 3 years, 123 posts, nearly 90,000 views and more than 32,000 users later, the people here making the UPV Gandia Science project […]

Various institutions, including the Campus Gandia of the Universitat Politècnica de València, are collaborating on a project involving satellite monitoring of juvenile loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) from breeding programs of the clutches found in the Spanish Mediterranean basin. The ultimate goal is to understand the behavior of this species to establish marine planning strategies for […]
