17 June - 16 September 2023
Every Friday and Saturday
Meal of the sea animal species

Every Friday and Saturday, HAPPY HOUR WITH TURTLES is a special guided tour to the CESTHA Research Centre of Marina di Ravenna. You will have the chance to attend the evening meal of some protected sea animal species.

During your visit, you will meet the turtles treated at the centre. You will discover the turtles’ history, their medical diagnosis, healing and release into the sea. Moreover, you will feel the thrill of taking actively part in the feeding on their daily meal.

The experience is suitable for all and it aims at providing environmental education. The participation fee aims at supporting the hospitalised sea animal species, such as the turtles — the centre’s guest stars. These events and the proceedings allow the centre to cover the expenses for the drugs, treatments and specific veterinary tests.


CESTHA (Experimental Centre for the Safeguard of Habitats) is a nonprofit research centre that makes its mission to safeguard the environment.

The research centre is located in the Old Fisher’s Market of Marina di Ravenna; it hosts the activities of researchers and experts of endangered species and promotes sustainable activities.
