European pond turtle - short: Emy
In Germany there is only one native turtle species - the European pond turtle. However, due to changes in nature, the habitat of these reptiles is increasingly endangered. Therefore SEA LIFE together with the NABU (Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union) campaigns for the animals threatened by extinction, so that they do not disappear from the landscape and the consciousness of humans. Numerous young animals are in the care of the aquariums in order to be released into the wild as quickly as possible. In the wild, the animals can possibly live up to 100 years.
