Açu Petróleo’s employees and partners participated in the turtle release action

Here at Açu Petróleo, protecting the environment is the path to development. To reinforce this value, our employees participated in the turtle release action at Praia das Conchas, in Açu – an initiative of the Sea Turtle Monitoring Program, which we carried out together with Porto do Açu and Ferroport. With great enthusiasm and aware of the importance of the program for the life of the turtles, we had the participation of approximately 50 employees. Since the beginning of this last breeding season, the program has identified 1,180 nests and recorded the birth of about 21,800 chicks. In 11 years of the program, there are more than 13 thousand registered nests and about 912 thousand chicks released into the sea. Stimulating good environmental practices is in our DNA.
