Vast participates in the 2023 sea turtles release

On January 25th, our employees participated in the 2023 sea turtle release. The action is part of the Sea Turtle Monitoring Program, developed by Vast together with Porto do Açu Operações, Ferroport and GNA, and coordinated by Reserva Caruara.

56 Vast employees were present at the action, which, besides the possibility of seeing the hatchlings up close, offers participants the opportunity to follow their walk to the water and understand more about sea turtles’ life cycle.

The program, created in 2008, monitors 62km of coastline, from Pontal de Atafona, in São João da Barra, to Barra do Furado, in Campos dos Goytacazes, identifying existing nests, following the birth of the nestlings and offering care to the animals that need treatment. Altogether, the program has already released more than 1 million nestlings to the sea.
