Tiny turtles TWENTY loggerhead turtles hatched at the end of August from eggs discovered on Mojacar’s Granatilla beach last July.  The Junta’s Environment department has transferred them to Andalucia’s Marine Environment Centre (Cegma) in Algeciras where they will remain for a year until they have grown sufficiently to survive on being released.
